Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "For all that fracking is in the news, actually explaining it to children as something other than just a funny-sounding word can prove problematic, but this volume in the Today's News series makes a noble effort. Although it's only 32 pages, there are plenty of facts about fracking in it more than just the 12 boasted on the cover. Each two-page spread starts with an overarching fact about an element of fracking and follows with a detailed explanation. Full-color, sometimes full-page photographs appear on each page, with captions, and colorful sidebars and text boxes sum up the information concisely. A few Think about It writing prompts will be helpful for classroom use. An interesting, easy-to-read book that strives to stay neutral on a hot-button topic.--Linsenmeyer, Erin Copyright 2015 Booklist"
