School Library Journal - 04/01/2021 Gr 3–5—This series asks young readers to think about what their world might look like in 2055. The author and illustrator then offer their own vision of the future complete with hydrogen-fueled cars, police and traffic drones, and mycelium houses. But they are quick to point out that this is only one version of the future created based on current technology. These books are beautifully illustrated in a retro-futuristic style. Some of the information is based on potential future technological innovation such as completely automated cars, but much of it is based on low-tech lifestyle changes that we could adopt today: drive less, use renewable energy sources, and reduce the use of pesticides. Other ideas are even older, such as grow your own food and build communities around gardens. Readers will learn a lot about technology but they will also learn that a clean future starts with small steps. VERDICT A great combination of science vocabulary, environmental appreciation, and imagination. - Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
