Booklist Review

Gr. 4^-7. Part of the Everything Kids' series that includes books about money and puzzles, this title presents a passel of environmental facts in busy, activity-filled pages. Beginning with basic definitions of natural phenomena, the chapters delve into classifications of the natural world; climatic zones; human impact on the environment; and outdoor recreation. Throughout, the text is broken up with offset facts and statistics, glossary definitions, "Featured Creature" boxes about animals, hands-on crafts and experiments, and cartoon drawings. With so much packed into such little space, students may not find enough information on any one subject for reports or research. More likely, children will browse this for the clear definitions and odd fun facts (the list of names for animal groupings--pride and horde, for example) while their teachers and parents will appreciate it for the numerous simple activities and succinct answers to such often-asked questions as What makes the colors in the rainbow? Suggest this also to baby-sitters, camp counselors, and other young adults who work with children. --Gillian Engberg
