School Library Journal Reviews

PreS-Gr 2—With its neon covers, vibrant photography, and "Let's Do It" text boxes that contain accessible tips for conserving and recycling, this series will grab children's attention. Each page is dynamic and energetic without being cluttered or busy. Headings such as "Use Every Drop" speak volumes and correspond perfectly to the illustrations. Take Care introduces the overarching theme of the series, while the other titles zoom in on three ways to participate in environmentalism. Each book explains a scientific concept, such as the water cycle, using clear diagrams and explanations. Vocabulary words such as "evaporate" are set apart in bold font and defined in language children will easily grasp. These scientific sections seamlessly transition into text that offers practical advice about conservation. The blend of theoretical and practical makes this a very readable series. Children will not be overloaded with dense information, but will gain enough facts to be inspired to act.
