Library Media Connection (May/June 2012)
This new series looks at aspects of ecology, including what is happening to the planet and what people can do to help combat environmental concerns. If one accepts the ecological viewpoint presented, the books are clear, concise, and colorful. Each book's "For More Information" page includes contact information for relevant organizations. The text is simple and straightforward and includes graphs and photographs to clarify subjects. These books would work well in an environmental science class. Glossary. Index. Laura Younkin, Library Media Specialist, Ballard High School, Louisville, Kentucky [Editor's Note: Available in e-book format.] RECOMMENDED.
