Earth: Feeling the Heatby Brenda Z. Guiberson
Synopses & Reviews
The earths climate is getting hotter, and this warming affects habitats, food chains, and life cycles around the world. It also affects the habitat of every single animal on the planet. But the animals themselves cant stop the warming…who can?
The answer is: PEOPLE CAN!
Brenda Guiberson takes a unique look at global warming by focusing on how it affects animal environments and what kids can do to help.
Earth is a 2011 NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Book.
"Gently urging, emotionally resonant text describes the impacts of global warming — 'Because the Arctic keeps getting warmer... the [polar] bear can't gain the weight she needs to raise a cub' — followed by variations on a plaintive refrain: 'Who can help the polar bear?' The sickly palette of Wallace's oil paintings emphasizes a planet in need: wildfire threatens an orangutan; a water hole dries up. In the end, three children plant a tree on a hill: 'a caribou, a pika, and even a Bengal tiger cannot stop the warming. Who can? People can!' Ages 4 — 8."
