Divided into eight sections for easy browsing and with over fifty photographs, captions, charts, and graphs, this nonfiction book is an excellent choice to share in the classroom and for homeschooling for kids ages 6 and up.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Simon packs a lot of information into this primer on climate change and environmental activism, wherein he offsets grim realities--many tied to global warming--with a message of hope aimed at today's youth. The colorful, magazine-style layout is punctuated by photos of natural disasters and extreme weather events, quotes from and photos of young activists around the world, and informational flowcharts and lists. Simon starts with a discussion of climate change versus global warming and greenhouse gases, pointing firmly toward the science that says these things are real and that humans are responsible. The text then naturally segues into the effects of climate change, such as droughts, wildfires, and floods, not to mention sea-level rise, ocean acidification, and wildlife destruction. These are heavy topics, but nearly every one ends with steps the reader can take to help conserve natural spaces and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (turning out lights, composting, etc.) and solutions scientists and engineers are currently working on. A comprehensive overview of a global crisis underscored by urgency and hope."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Science expert Simon returns in this adept picture book, which centers the causes and effects of the climate crisis, humankind's role, and the youth activism taking place during a time of unprecedented levels of climate change. Informative but easy-to-understand sections detailing how humans are causing the crisis are immediately followed by ways in which readers can be part of the solution. Peppered throughout are features of notable youth activists, including Nobel Peace Prize nominee Greta Thunberg, as well as figures who have become involved in climate activism after facing wildfires, drought, deforestation, and other consequences of the climate crisis. Photographs, diagrams, and a glossary aid in explaining scientific concepts and in conveying the disaster humans face through inaction. A straightforward yet cogent primer. Ages 6--10. (Feb.)"
