"...these issues are important, and even if these introductions are stronger on general concepts than specific facts, they should stimulate enough concern to fuel further inquiry." - School Library Journal

NSTA Recommends - Jennifer Pritchard, Science and Math Institute Program Coordinator

"Are you looking for a book or series that encapsulates the variety of ways our Earth’s resources are being diminished? If so, this may be the book series for you. . . .Each 32–page volume presents a broad overview of the many ways humans not only rely on Earth’s resources, but also harm the Earth’s resources. Each volume includes a table of contents, glossary, critical thinking questions using the Common Core, index, internet sites, and additional reading suggestions. The pictures, captions, and FACTS provide the reader with specific examples of environmental issues presented in each chapter. However, because there are a wide variety of competing challenges that affect Earth’s resources (understandably so), when presented all at once, it could make it hard for some readers to gain an understanding of or to think deeply about any one issue. I can imagine this series being used as a jumping off point for your students to begin thinking about the diversity and talking about the interconnectedness of the issues surrounding Earth’s endangered resources. To this end, the best part of the series is the set of critical thinking questions at the end of each volume. These questions provide the opportunity for Grades 3–4 students to look deeper into issues and identify relationships as well as brainstorm ways in which humans can make a difference in protecting our endangered resources. These books could also help ELL students to grasp basic concepts that are enhanced by the engaging photos and concise graphics as part of their visual literacy." - NSTA Recommends
