How We Know What We Know About Our Changing Climate: Scientists and Kids Explore Global Warming by Lynne Cherry & Gary Braasch

Lynne Cherry, our foremost children's environmental writer, and photojournalist Gary Braasch, show us the science behind the headlines, in terms that are hopeful and not terrifying to young people. They explore evidence from flowers, butterflies, birds, frogs, trees and glaciers gathered from scientists all over the world, sometimes with assistance from young "citizen-scientists." And they discuss what young people, and their families and teachers, can do to learn about climate change and take action.
Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature,says"This is a necessary book. It treats kids with respect--they deserve to know what's going on. But they also deserve to know that there's much that can be done, and much that is being done."

Focus of the book: ages 10-14, with color photographs.
