School Library Journal - Jackie Partch

"This series examines the resources that enter and leave our homes. Each title covers where the utilities and items come from, how they arrive at residences, and how they are used. The texts emphasize why we should conserve natural resources and reduce waste, though Garbage neglects to mention composting. Information is presented in a question-and-answer format and follows a logical order. The few sentences on each page are enhanced by color photos or charts. Picture glossaries aid with the comprehension of unfamiliar words, and each title has an activity that students can use to track and reduce their energy use or increase recycling. These volumes lend themselves easily to curriculum use. -- Jackie Partch, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR School Library Journal, "Series Made Simple" 11/1/2012" - School Library Journal
