This is the first book I've come across that really delivers the science and reasoning behind climate change at a very easy to understand level. In all honesty, I personally understand it a lot better now. Earth Matters: Loving Our Planet by Carole Wilkinson and Hilary Cresp is a brilliant book for educating our children about the planet and the decisions we can make to slow down its destruction.
Can you tell me a story?
In clear simple prose [Carole] writes about all the relevant topics such as green-house gases, global warming, and renewable energy. I like the direct language she uses. She doesn't preach but is always sensible and practical. Credit must go to Hilary Cresp whose cheerful illustrations go a long way in helping readers understand complex matters. A relevant and timely book that should be in every school library.
