Summary
Suggestions, information, and poems about environmental issues, one for each letter of the alphabet
Review
Gr 3–6— For each letter, an eight-line poem introduces a tip for protecting the environment. Lengthy sidebars accompany each verse and provide more detailed information. The book is illustrated with acceptable watercolor paintings. The sidebars are well written, but the poetry is sometimes awkward and occasionally feels forced. The content presents useful advice, though many of the suggestions are aimed at things adults can do, such as composting and improving the insulation in their home, and forgoing items made of ivory or animal skins. However, important information has occasionally been left out. For example, the entry for the letter "B" discusses the uses of compact fluorescent lights. Although the text cautions about handling broken bulbs due to mercury content, it doesn't explain that these bulbs need to be properly recycled. Overall, though, this is an interesting starting point for a class researching a wide range of environmental topics.—Lindsay Cesari, Baldwinsville School District, NY --Lindsay Cesari (Reviewed May 1, 2009) (School Library Journal, vol 55, issue 5, p94)
