With the goal of encouraging children to increase their knowledge of the environment as they build on their language-arts proficiency, Roberts has compiled an annotated bibliography complete with integrated home and school activities. The chapters are organized according to language-arts areas, focusing on involving children in language, listening, folk literature, reading, and speaking. Divided by age level (5-8 and 9-14), each section lists several books that foster environmental awareness along with plot summaries and related activities. The names and addresses of environmental organizations and a list of periodicals that publish children's work are included. A valuable resource.

"Environmental awareness is a hot topic today, and these annotated bibliographies and activities will be useful in the library, home, and classroom. Each section is divided into two age groups, 5 to 8 and 9 to 14. The focus is very message oriented, but the book discussions will draw kids into the topics and get them reading, listening, speaking, and writing about science, folklore, art, and other subjects across the curriculum." -- Booklist, August 1998
