Item Description...
When the weather changes daily, how do we really know that Earth's climate is changing? Here is the science behind the headlines--evidence from flowers, butterflies, birds, frogs, trees, glaciers, and much more, gathered by scientists from all over the world, sometimes with assistance from young "citizen-scientists." Climate change is a critical and timely topic of deep concern, here told in an age-appropriate manner, with clarity and hope. Kids can make a difference!

Global Warming for Kids  Oct 20, 2008
This is a great book for kids, especially, but for adults as well; I read it and enjoyed it and learned some things I didn't know about our changing climate. It is loaded with facts and information about climate change and global warming. The tightly written text is accompanied by a host of beautiful, glossy photographs as well as numerous charts and graphs. Science terms are both italicized and well defined in the text.

The book is set up in four sections. "Section one: Where We Find Clues About Climate Change" shows how data has been collected and research is being done about the changes in bird, butterfly and penguin populations as well as the changing tundra and landscapes in different parts of the world. "Section two: Fitting the Clues Together" tells how the facts and data collected in Section One are used to create models and computer programs showing changes that have already occurred and modeling and predicting what other changes will take place if the trend in global warming continues. "Section Three: What Scientists and You can Do" lists a whole array of things that can be done to reduce our "climate (carbon) footprint". "Section Four: Resources" gives all the resources used in the book and tells where readers can go for more information.

A Teacher's Guide is available from the publisher for teachers who would like to use this book in their classrooms. I believe this book would make an excellent classroom resource. There's lots of information about student groups worldwide that are helping scientists with their data collections.

There are so many good things to say about this book I hate to even mention the bad ones. But, alas, almost every book seems to have at least one thing about it that could be improved; this book has three. Let's not call them bad things, though; let's just say there are a couple of things I would do to improve the book.

First, I would correct the typo on page 39. (See if you can find it!). Then, I would add a glossary to the end of the book. There are a lot of science terms that are used throughout the book that are both italicized and defined in the text, keeping the text flowing and the narrative going. But, I think a glossary would be an added bonus for both students and teachers. If you want to find the meaning of a term, say tree cookies, you could leaf through the pages until you came to it on page 22; but, wouldn't it be easier to just go to a glossary at the back of the book and find the term listed there? Just a thought. . .

Even if you don't believe in global warming, you should appreciate the beautiful photos and the rich text of this fact-filled book. I give it 4 stars.
A little balance, please  Sep 12, 2008
Very nice composition, art work and presentation. A beautiful book.

Unfortunately, herein is a lot of valid science that is irrelevant to the central thesis. Yes, climate change is probably real. Yes, humanity is contributing to the concentration of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere. However, together these observations do not scientifically demonstrate that humanity is destroying the earth and must retrogress civilization or die. In fact, there are other potentially valid explanations and possible outcomes.

I wish all the kids subjected to this stuff had the insight to parse it properly. Without that, charting when the leaves turn, or when birds migrate, could make many young minds paranoid.

Science, Service, Global Warming  Sep 10, 2008
One of the worst things about reading global warming books is that feeling of helplessness that sets in as statistic is added to statistic. Now, at last, Lynne Cherry has produced a well illustrated text that tells us how we can help by observing and documenting changes in the world around us. There are no grand claims, no easy solutions, but the hope that as we know more about what is happening, the better we will know what to do. At the back of the book, Cherry lists where we can submit our observations. As one who works in community service, I am impressed at how this book takes education into the real world. I have given it to our 5th grade faculty for service learning.

How We Know What We Know About Our Changing Climate is highly recommended.
How We Know What We Know About Our Changing Climate:Scientists and Kids Explore Global Warming  Sep 6, 2008
I purchased the book to serve as a reference for my First Lego League robotics team as our 2008 challenge is about climate and global warming. The text and format are engaging and the photos are awesome. As a former teacher, I can see how this could serve as an effective instructional tool and informational resource for teachers and students.
Kids can make a difference  May 1, 2008
Reviewed by Maya Landers (age 10) for Reader Views (4/08)

"How We Know What We Know About Our Changing Climate," by Lynne Cherry and Gary Braasch, was both interesting and informative. I didn't know anything about Global Warming, or how scientists know about it, but this book explained it to me. It also told me ways that I could participate in helping scientists get more data, which I thought was fascinating. I didn't know that there was anything that I could do to help. One of the ways that the book said that children could help was to record and chart when the first birds began to appear and when the first buds began to blossom.

The pictures were clear and sharp, and they featured extraordinary and beautiful views, as well of pictures of the some children who helped the scientists to collect their data. The type was large and easy-to-read. The book laid its facts out in a simple, easy-to-understand way that young children could understand, and there were definitions for most of the words, making everything even clearer still. While it could be for any age group, I thought that it was best suited for six-to-twelve-year-olds, although children and adults of any age would be able to understand and enjoy it.

The combination of pictures and information helped balance the book so that it was not too much like a textbook. Throughout the book, the authors show pictures and write articles about children who helped scientists collect data. In addition, readers learned facts about Global Warming and how scientists know about it. I thought that this was a very good balance between scientists and non-scientists, something that I do not find in many science books.

There are also photographs in the book that compare "now and then" -- for instance, what the Athabasca Glacier looked like in 1917 compared to what it looked like in 2005. The difference was astounding! I wasn't aware of the changes that Global Warming has provoked, and this book explained it to me. However, it wasn't a discouraging book. It told the facts, and then told you what you could do to help, not dwelling unnecessarily on gloomy or dispiriting things.

I would recommend "How We Know What We Know About Our Changing Climate" to my friends because I thought that it did a good job separating fact from fiction, and also because it showed real-life situations where children were able to help scientists.
