Grade 4-8-- An upbeat, lively introduction to "green consumerism," Going Green will be a goldmine of ecological information and inspiration for children interested in taking an active role in the protection of our planet. The authors give background on the nature of the ecological problems facing the Earth: the greenhouse effect, ozone, pollution, trash, and endangered species. They encourage readers to be watchful for ecological hazards and wastefulness by taking "green audits" of their homes, schools, and communities, concentrating on the problems created by pollutants, packaging, energy waste, and the failure to recycle. An A-to-Z list of activities, emphasizing simple deeds well within the ability of most children, outlines the ways in which individuals can make a contribution. The text is interspersed with sidebars that feature statistical information on pollution and waste. Success stories are included along with real hair-raisers. Colorful, cartoonlike illustrations contribute to the book's appeal, while suggestions for further reading and addresses of involved organizations provide guidance for the truly dedicated. --Jeffrey A.
