Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the world-renowned photographer of the bestselling Earth from Above for Young Readers comes a new look at the world on a grand scale.

 

The long-term consequences and the personal stories of people around the world “going green” make up the focus of this beautiful book.

 

The scientific and technical advances of the last century have had major effects on the earth. How can humans, in todays world, continue to respect nature and avoid doing irreparable damage to the planet? From pollution to CO2 emissions and endangered plants, to disappearing languages and glaciers, each theme is presented in detail.

 The bestselling Earth from Above for Young Readers captured the attention of budding environmentalists and naturalists around the country. This companion volume offers even more information to inspire readers to do what they can to help the planet.

Review:

Yann Arthus-Bertrand is the sky king of photography, and –Our Living Earth” (Abrams, $24.95; ages 8 and up; ISBN 978-0810971325) turns his aerial images into a lesson about the impact of humanity on the planet. Organized into eight interrelated sections and punctuated with bold-face statistics, –Our Living Earth” is aimed squarely at tween and teen readers...
