Description


An encouraging and comprehensive illustrated nonfiction guide introducing children to the important topic of climate change with clear facts and positive solutions.

"This clear introduction to the whats and whys of environmental degradation balances sad facts with examples of what can and is being done. A solid pick...for its positive approach and breadth." --Kirkus Review

Filled with engaging big ideas that will inspire children to think about their role in keeping our world healthy, Our World Out of Balance details how humans have thrown the planet off-balance and ways we can work together to be part of the solution and create a healthier world.

Featuring brave scientists, young activists, and many groups working collectively to protect our future, Our World Out of Balance will leave readers feeling empowered and inspired.

Perfect for homeschooling and virtual and blended learning, each chapter pairs brightly colored illustrations with easily graspable scientific facts and statistics. The easy-to-follow "Before" and "After" segments help children understand complex topics like:
-Air pollution
-Rising seas
-Plastics and increased waste
-Wildfires

The backmatter lists various citizen science initiatives that kids can take part in to help make a difference. Informational text includes a table of contents, diagrams, index, glossary, and select bibliography. Printed on FSC-certified paper with vegetable inks.
