The Future of the Earth: An Introduction to Sustainable Development for Young Readers

The Future of the Earth: An Introduction to Sustainable Development for Young Readers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first book for young readers that explains sustainable development in easy terms

An attention-grabbing primer on mankind's direct and indirect effects on the natural world, this important book explains how such topics as global trends, economic disparity, and invasive species, among others, have changed the world in which we live.

World-renowned photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand's spectacular photographs feature fragile environments that are at risk of being lost as well as places that have already seen the devastating effects of human behavior. A poignant overview of the state of the globe, this book encourages readers to understand what is happening in the environment and to take action.

Synopsis:

From the best-selling author and photographer of Earth from Above for Kids comes a great introduction to various developments affecting the earth on a global level-perfect for the classroom! 60 illustrations.

Synopsis:

- stunning photographs by the same photographer as Earth From Above for Young Readers
- perfect for Earth Day (April 22 every year, sometimes alternatively recognized during March equinox) promotions
- Edited by Robert Burleigh, a known and trusted figure in children's books today

About the Author

Yann Arthus-Bertrand continues here the work he began with Earth from Above for Young Readers in widening the horizons of people everywhere. His powerful photographs are used to raise awareness of the importance of sustainable development, so that future generations can inherit a livable planet. He lives in France.

Robert Burleigh, in addition to Earth from Above for Young Readers, has authored Volcanoes: Journey to the Crater's Edge, which was nominated for Disney Adventures Magazine Best Book of the Year; The Sea: Exploring Life on an Ocean Planet, an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Award winner; and Chocolate: Riches from the Rain Forest, a Texas Bluebonnet Master List selection. He has also written many critically praised, award-winning fiction, nonfiction, and poetry books for children. A painter as well as a writer, he lives with his wife in Chicago.
