Review
  • Gr 2-4–Introductory titles with an environmentalist point of view. The first book offers facts about alligators and their habitat, followed by discussions of why they began to disappear, how their environment changed, and what has been done to save American alligators. Readers are asked to think of ways to save those in China, which continue to be endangered. An activity is included.Ice Capsdiscusses the need for balance in nature, the greenhouse effect, and what canbe done to help combat global warming. In both books, the information is detailed, but not overwhelming. However, the absence of chapters might hinder their usefor reports. Colorful illustrations provide details that support the texts.–Christine Markley, Washington Elementary School, Barto, PA School Library Journal, A Reed Business Information Publication
  • Posing on icebergs that are considerably smaller on the rear endpapers than the front, flocks of penguins tellingly bookend this call to start worrying about the effects of global warming, and to think about personal-scale ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Though Rockwell oddly omits mention of nitrogen and oxygen in her tally of atmospheric gases, and Meisel suggests in one cartoon scene that children might actually perceive a single year's change in sea level, in general readers will find a thought-provoking, balanced mix of facts and opinions that won't leave them feeling helpless in the face of a worldwide catastrophe in the making. A worthy addition to the Lets Read and Find Out series. (Picture book/nonfiction. 6-8) (Kirkus Reviews, October 15, 2006)
