Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kids ages 8--12 will love these 22 exciting activities and experiments focused on producing and playing with renewable energy. Projects range from the quick and simple — like the Pie Plate Wind-Maker — to the thrillingly large-scale, like Pedal Power, in which kids use a bicycle to power a 12-volt battery. Each activity teaches children about renewable energy and larger environmental issues. Education doesn't get more fun than this! Catch the Wind, Harness the Sun offers more than enough to get any kid charged up about renewable energy.

Review:

"Caduto encourages a hands-on approach to climate change, conservation, and alternative energy by combining conversational text, photographs, and cartoon graphics with dynamic and informative projects. In a section on the sun, readers are invited to 'write with sunlight,' using wood, safety glasses, and a magnifying glass (under parental supervision); a section on wind power provides steps for constructing a windmill. Other projects suggest small lifestyle changes to benefit the environment, such as spending a day without using electricity or researching and pledging to help countries most affected by climate change. Curious kids should enjoy the hands-on projects with tangible outcomes, while absorbing the lesson about mindfulness. Ages 8 — 12. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
