Review by Booklist Reviews

In this entry in the Searchlight Books: Climate Change series (6 titles), young readers are introduced to the wide-ranging impact of climate change all over the world. Broken up into four chapters, this slim volume introduces the difference between weather and climate, as well as the science behind rising temperatures and their effect on weather. The increase in the intensity of storms, droughts, and wildfires is also covered, along with ways in which these storms are monitored and steps readers can take to help combat climate change. Brief but thorough chapters explain climate and weather changes well, with corresponding color photographs depicting the impact of these changes. Tips, a time line, glossary, index, and lists of recommended books and websites accompany the text. A great introduction to climate change and its effect on weather. Grades 2-4.
