I have read this book and, whilst I agree with the other reviewer that it is certainly for children at the older end of the 9-12 age group, I would recommend it to any parent or teacher who wants to introduce the (often very complicated) subject of climate change to an interested child. The book isn't all doom and gloom as some might fear. It actually paints a very balanced of the issue: the science, the implications, and the likely solutions. This is probably about as stripped down a take on climate change that is possible without a book becoming largely meaningless. We have to try and talk about these important issues with children at some stage and this is a fine way to begin.
