Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is not right that children should be fed unprovable theories like this current book aimed at kids. The very title is misleading: the ice caps are not melting, and although the Arctic sea ice has been in retreat for a number of years, those at the Antarctic are at their greatest extent in living memory. The book purports to provide scientific facts but fails dismally, and it is morally wrong, in my opinion, to feed such material to children, whether at school or in the home.

I teach a Montessori Class of 5 -7 year olds and this book really caught all of their attentions and made them concerned and in awe of the greenhouse effect. They decided to do a project on global warming and turn our school into a green school. The book was laid out in a very easy to understand format with some great illustrations. I really recommend this book to anyone wanting to teach their kids about the cause of global warming, what it is and what we can do to help
