School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-A brief, unfocused book. Two-page spreads cover the history of the environmental movement, influential books and personalities, eco-issues, El Ni-o, recycling, and types of environmentalists. Although a variety of careers are mentioned, students interested in pursuing a particular job in this field or researching one for an assignment will have to look elsewhere for specific information. Readers may also be frustrated by the haphazard organization and lack of index and table of contents. The many glossy, full-color photographs are attractive and include a photo gallery of endangered species and an illustrated 10-topic vocabulary list.-Marilyn Payne Phillips, University City Public Library, MO (c) Copyright 2010.
