Review by Booklist Reviews

Bold design and eye-catching photos give the covers of these large-format paperbacks a distinctive look. Inside, their broad subjects break down into topical double-page spreads full of photos, sidebars, and fact boxes. The many well-chosen photos vary in size from the very small to full-page shots overlaid with bits of text and illustrations. The writing is succinct, though information generally appears in small, individual segments rather than a continuous text. And although the series originates in England, the coverage is worldwide, and there's plenty of North American content. Global Warming discusses how natural and human-made factors have affected Earth's natural cycles, changing the land, atmosphere, and oceans in ways that impact life on the planet. The colorful Visual Explorers series is effectively designed to attract browsers, keep them interested, and teach them a thing or two along the way. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
