This book is very good at helping Kids to be aware of the problems we, as people, are doing to pollutes the earth. It takes topics like Air Pollution, The Ozone Hole, Acid Rain, etc. It explains what the situation is - how it got that way - and gives the kids a mission on how they can help remendy it. There are a lot of fun projects like being a water Leak Detective in your home - making a simple bird house - being a junk food detective.
This would be very good for hands on projects for Home School families.
