Gr 3-4-Although the majority of adults pictured on the covers detract from these books' kid appeal, the age-appropriate texts convey basic environmental concepts like the greenhouse effect, sustainability, recycling, and conservation. Readers will also be able to follow food's path from farm to table or a plastic bottle from production to disposal and learn how traditional methods of farming, traveling, and consumption can harm the environment. Each spread has bright, captioned color photos. While there are doable suggestions for being Earth conscious, such as turning off the water while brushing teeth, taking reusable bags to the store, and checking a product's label, these titles serve better as resources for reports than as handbooks for living green.-Joanna K.
