Full Text Reviews:
School Library Journal - 04/01/2022 Gr 2–3—The series focuses on the effects of climate change on Earth. Each title starts with a table of contents, each section is twopages with short two-to-three sentence paragraphs paired with a photo on each page. Vocabulary words are underlined and bubbles with extra facts can be found throughout the text. Infographics help affirm how the planet is getting warmer and how that then impacts people, animals, and vegetation everywhere. The end of each title offers ways readers can help, such as choosing a meal without meat (Drier). The final page includes a glossary and index. While the design and color of the actual text can be difficult to read at times, the sentences are relatively short and the information is solid, overall. VERDICT A quick informative introduction to climate change for elementary readers. - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
