Podcast featuring this book

“You know that Popsicle in your freezer? At 32°F it freezes and stays solid enough for you to bite it. But at 33°F it falls off the stick.” That one practical example provides an image that young readers can relate to when they hear that the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere has caused a one degree rise in the Earth’s average temperature. Divided into four sections that distill the science behind global warming theory into a lively, kid-friendly narrative, give examples of related changes in weather, highlight effects on animal species facing extinction, and offer realistic ways children can help turn the environmental tide. The hip, highly visual format is packed with accessible substance, designed to invite a page-flipping browse as well as a more traditional read-through.
