These titles educate children about the environment and simple things they can do to help protect the earth (e.g., save water, conserve energy, care for nature, reuse and recycle, and clean up litter). The texts, though limited and repetitive, are accessible and accurately translated. Clear photographs supplement and enhance the information. Glos., ind.

This series provides very simple introductions to environmentalism. Short, easy-to-read declarative sentences using limited vocabulary are repetitive across volumes ("We use glass for many things," "We use plastic for many things," "We use water for many things"), which can be tedious but also may help struggling readers. Clear, bright photographs will attract browsers. Skimpy picture glossaries are appended. Ind.
