Environmental protection is an important topic for us all, and this book is a wonderful way for children to gain appreciation and respect for nature. Why is it important to conserve water and electricity? Why are forests essential for our climate? How can we gain energy from wind, water and the sun? What are environmentally friendly alternatives to driving everywhere in cars? How can we generate less trash, and what happens to all the garbage we do produce after garbage trucks take it away? The exploration concludes with simple yet creative ways children themselves can take small but meaningful actions to be good stewards of our environment.

The WWW series stands out for its playful, enticing way of conveying just the information that kids want to know.
