Annotation: Giving kids the idea that they have power to effect change is the basic premise of this work. Many of the Earth's environmental problems-climate change; deforestation; shrinking habitat; species extinction; water, air, noise, and light pollution-as well as global conflict and overpopulation are addressed. For each challenge, a success story is shared and an action tip is put forth to help readers do their small share to address the problem. Positive and upbeat with bright photos and illustrations and a direct tone, the message delivered is that if properly informed and motivated, individuals can help the challenges, however monumental, to be met. Many pertinent and informative Web sites are listed, but while the book states that Libraries carry books and movies on all the great topics in this book, no titles for further reading are offered.
