Full-Text Reviews
Booklist (August 2016 (Vol. 112, No. 22))
Grades 4-6. Between industry and everyday consumption, the amount of pollution produced can be overwhelming. These titles in the Searchlight Books: What Can We Do about Pollution? series succinctly explain how different types of pollution are created, how they affect humans and the environment, and how ordinary citizens can reduce pollution. Manufacturing Pollution looks at three significant types of pollution—air, water, and soil—caused by manufacturing as well as how waste materials enter the environment due to the manufacturing process and through accidents. Accompanied by numerous crisp photos, charts, and graphs, these interrelated books conclude with suggestions for manufacturers and individuals to eliminate waste and pollution.
