Another great one by Steve Jenkins - big surprise. His illustrations, as always, are amazing. The information presented, as always, is fascinating and thought provoking. My daughter found some of the facts rather depressing (rising oceans, extinction, overpopulation), but facts are facts. And again, as always, Jenkins provides several pages of great supplemental information relating to the main topic. It would have been nice if he'd included a little information about little things kids can do to make a difference with regards to some of the more sobering facts, but then again it might motivate some kids to seek out the information on their own.
