School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-8-- Of these books, only The Ocean is unique for this age group. Geology, geography, economics, and marine life are the themes of Lambert's Seas and Oceans (Silver Burdett, 1987) and Bramwell's The Oceans (Watts, 1987); this volume focuses on pollution and environmental deterioration and relates them to other aspects of the ecosystem as applicable. There are so many books available on the three other topics that it is difficult to distinguish or choose among them. The best feature of these particular titles is their format: comfortable print and high quality full-color photographs. Other similar books, such as McCormick's Acid Rain (Gloucester, 1986) or Hare's Greenhouse Effect and Ozone (both Watts, 1990), are oversized and have a picture book look, while these smaller volumes may appeal more to older reluctant readers and are more convenient to shelve. The writing styles vary, but on the whole, the books are clear with a minimum of scientific and technical terms, all of which are explained in the glossaries. --Meryl Silverstein, American Museum of Natural History, New York City (c) Copyright 2010.
