"simple and informative" according to Michele. This book is part of the Earth in Danger series. It discusses the topic of climate change - what it is, what causes it, and what we can do to stop it. Included are the ideas of greenhouse gases, fossil fuels, and global warming. The facts are presented straightforwardly and simply enough for children to understand.

From an increase in Earths extreme weather to a decline in the Arctics polar bear population, global warming is already affecting our world. Climate Change pairs clear, easy-to-read text with vibrant photos to engage kids as they explore the causes and effects of climate change as well as possible solutions. A section in the back of the book will inspire young environmentalists by suggesting ways they can help protect their planet.
