We've been pretty hard on our planet. It's time to start giving Mother Earth a little mothering. With topics that range from electric cars to wind power, this series uses simple language and clear explanations to introduce young readers to some of the technologies that are helping us care for our planet.

Series Made Simple

From wind power to green buildings, the subject matter covered here explores the ways in which technology is being used to address environmental issues. Each book contains three chapters that give readers an overview of the topic, basic concepts, and possibilities for the future, often asking the audience to think critically and consider why or how these things work. The author also goes to great lengths to include the problems associated with these new technologies as well as the benefits, providing a balanced and comprehensive approach. “Did You Know?” sidebars and helpful charts offer more detailed information, while the “Try This!” activity gives students a hands-on understanding of the concepts. The full-page photo spreads are lush and gorgeously shot, even the ones featuring unpleasant images or locations (the landfill in Recycling) and enhance the already solid reading experience. VERDICT A visually appealing series that tackles alternative energy.
