There were several early environmentalists, including Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, Theodore Roosevelt and Jacques-Yves Cousteau. They were the early pioneers and not always taken seriously, but now there are many people and organizations that are interested in protecting our environment. Young people today realize that we're woven into the environment just as much as a leaf on a tree or the soil we walk on and there are many little things we can do to help.

In this book you'll learn about the Earth and our place in it, biome facts, Earth's atmosphere, the stratosphere, the sun, plant and animal species on Earth, pollution, global warming, ozone depletion, endangered species, how to recycle and how the environment balances itself. There are projects interspersed in these pages relative to the dialogue. The author does try to im upon the reader to be aware of the materials you use and encourages environmental awareness throughout the text. Among the many projects you can do include:

I've been looking at this book for over a month and marveling at the amazing information packed inside. This book was printed on 100% recycled paper by a member of the Green Initiative and a listing of the resources saved are listed in the front. The inside has no glossy pages and is actually quite dull looking in black and white. BUT, you'll have to travel far and wide to find a more interesting and unique book that not only discusses critical environmental issues, but also pres many hands-on projects for its readers. In the back of the book is a glossary, an index and additional recommended book, periodical, environmental and web site resources for children. Can't go wrong with this book!
