||This book for ages 9-12 is a practical and upbeat guide to saving resources and protecting the environment. Each brief chapter begins with an often humorous "Take a Guess," followed by an overview of a problem in "Did You Know," "What You Can Do," and "See For Yourself" sections. Statistics and measurements are translated into age-appropriate terms, such as comparing children's weight to the amount of garbage thrown away in a year. Parents and teachers will find this to be a useful guide for increasing awareness of environmental problems and a superb teaching tool.
