Gr 3–5—This comprehensive four-part series focuses on the causes and effects of climate change. Divided into sections, the volumes explain the specific consequences of animal displacement, the adverse effects of greenhouse gases on the atmosphere and water quality, the evolution of major climate and weather disruptions over time, and more. The Greenhouse Effect outlines the history of industrial development and its impact on current climate conditions and also the economic and political implications for the past and present. Full-page photographs are complemented by easy-to-read blocks of text, including boldface words that might be unfamiliar to the reader. Those words, as well as other concepts, are defined in the back matter of each volume. An index and comprehension quizzes are included to ensure retention. VERDICT This series offers an up-to-date look at the effects of climate change and is a strong choice for any size collection. Copyright 2020 School Library Journal.

Glaciers are melting. Summers are heating up. Sea levels are on the rise. Climate change is affecting every corner of our planet - and it's the subject of a lot of concern, activism, and debate. How is climate change affecting Earth's ecosystems? What happens to animals and other organisms when the habitats around them start to change? This book addresses how climate change affects species on land and in the ocean, which species are most at risk of extinction, and why the speed at which changes are happening makes it difficult for organisms to adapt.STEM meets current events in this new A True Book set that offers readers the chance to learn about the causes and effects of climate change, as well as how people around the world are reacting to it. Students will read about the history and scope of the problem, analyze the same kinds of evidence that scientists do, and come away with tools that will help them respond to this pressing global issue.This series covers Next Generation Science Standards core ideas including Weather and Climate, Human Impacts on Earth Systems, Conservation of Energy and Energy Transfer, and Biodiversity and Humans.
