“I’ve never seen such a comprehensive explanation of the [global warming] phenomenon in so few words.”
—    The New York Times Book Review
(Reviewed by Hank Green, editor-in-chief of EcoGeek.org)

“The Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming…brings knotty matters
down to manageable scope for youngsters ages 8 and up.” Metropolitan Home Magazine

“It’s easy being green with Laurie David and Cambria Gordon’s informative book, which helps kids understand what’s happening to our environment.”
—    Parents Magazine

“Funny and full of tips, the book informs—and empowers—kids and adults alike.”
— Family Circle

“The heart of the book is in making the concept of global warming understandable for your kids.”

“Four well-organized sections define the issue and give examples of consequences in the physical world, extinctions in the animal world and what young people can do. A humorous tone, eye-catching graphics and celebrity connections lend pizzazz to this volume, but there is plenty of substance, too.”
— Kirkus, starred review

“Dynamic layouts and abundant illustrations and photos enliven the passionate words—lush, full-bleed photographs emphasize the high stakes by portraying both the splendor of the natural world and the devastating effects of climate change. Printed in soy ink on recycled paper, this engaging and accessible guide, ideal as a gift or book-club option, inspires commitment to the planet.”
— Publishers Weekly, starred review
