Down-to-Earth garbage. Had to purchase the book for a college class I was taking. Personally feel like it was a waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great so far! Oct. 22 2007

I haven't gotten through the whole book yet, but I have sat down with my 4-year-old son and read some. It's written very well to make it easy to understand what Global Warming is all about. Since my son is only 4, I easily skipped over some of the bigger words and still got the points across. I will be ordering more for Christmas gifts.

This is a wonderful book, chock full of information about what we are doing to our Earth, as well as great tips for making a difference, all in a very USER FRIENDLY FORMAT. Forget the doom and gloom, just do something! I bought several to give out as gifts (I usually only borrow books from the library, but this is printed on recycled paper...).

5.0 out of 5 stars great pictures! March 4 2008
By Michele - Published on
Format: Paperback
As the title summarizes, this book discusses the topic of global warming. The book is split up into chapters that describe what global warming is, how it can effect our planet and everything living on it, and what we can do to stop this problem. A glossary and an index are included. To fit with the earth-friendly subject material, the book is even printed with soy inks on recycled paper.

This book is a great introduction to the topic of global warming. Since this topic is something that people sometimes disagree on, readers can use the information in the book to form their own opinions. I think that the authors do a very good job of not only discussing their opinions, but also using facts to back them up. I think the best chapter in this book is the one discussing what we can do to help the earth. The ideas in this chapter are ones that young people can do on their own, like not leaving the chargers for their cell phone or mp3 player plugged in when the device is not connected to it. The bright bold pictures are what drew me in to this book and they would definitely keep readers interested.
