Reviews

School Library Journal - John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York City

"Frequent sidebars throughout offering closer examinations of particular issues, eyewitness or expert commentary, profiles of scientists, and “Hero or Villain?” counterpoints join well-chosen photos and other illustrations. Readers studying climate change, pollution, natural catastrophes and related subjects will find these studies low on definitive answers, but rich in points to ponder." - School Library Journal

School Library Connection - Rich Parker, Media Specialist, Fox Chapel Elementary School, Germantown, MD

"...well-captioned photographs and diagrams support the text, as do sidebars. Each volume concludes with interesting “Places to Visit” for those who wish to study further." - School Library Connection
