Global warming is an interesting topic. This book has excellent facts about global warming and detailed illustrations. Global warming has some positive and some negative effects. Hotter winters reduce the amount of heating, which saves people money. Heat waves have killed several people. ( )

I think this book is a good read for older children because global warming affects everyone, and these children are the future generation that could begin certain practices to help aid, but ultimately stop global warming. This book takes you through what global warming is, what it can do to our environment, how it affects peple and animals, and possible changes we can incorporate in our lives to make a difference. I think this would be a good book to do a report on or propose ideas to help stop global warming. ( )

Global Warming is well written and easy to read. There are many full color pictures to support the ideas/concepts presented. The section headings are clear and appropriate for the topic. The diagrams and charts are color coded and easy to decipher. Pringle uses scientific language without overwhelming the reader with unfamiliar and difficult vocabulary. The topic of global warming is of interest to teens and Pringle provides suggestions for responsible changes as well as outlines the serious consequences of a failure to address environmental concerns. Pringle discusses the history of climate changes and projects future possible changes. ( )
