A Child's Introduction to The Environment

BY BLACK DOG & LEVENTHAL PUBLISHING

A Child's Introduction to the Environment: the Air, Earth, and Sea Around Us-Plus Experiments, Projects, and Activities You Can Do to Help Our Planet!

by Driscoll, Michael, Professor, and Driscoll, Dennis, and Hamilton, Meredith (Illustrator)

A Child's Introduction to the Environment provides an entertaining and instructive tour of the Earth's varied environments, along with activities and materials to encourage young environmentalists. Kids aged 8-13 and their parents will appreciate this upbeat yet clear-eyed, interactive look at our magnificent planet and how we can safeguard it. Exploring the water, land, and air around us, the book looks at the wide variety of environmental regions of the world (deserts, forests, cities, farms, ice caps, oceans) as well as the atmosphere, weather, energy sources, plants, and animals of each area. Short features throughout offer fun facts, projects, and experiments that kids can do with parents or on their own. Charming original watercolor illustrations throughout are perfectly paired with an accessible text by a father-and-son team of writers (Dad is a meteorologist). And it is all printed on recycled material, of course!
