Synopsis

Geosphere by Dana Desonie

People exploit the land for desired resources, such as oil, minerals, or timber, or they convert vast expanses of natural terrain to landscapes that better meet their needs: Forests become tree plantations, wilderness is converted to agricultural land, and even farms are paved over to make cities. Already about half the ice-free land area has been converted for human purposes, and that number is growing rapidly. Geosphere is an invaluable new resource that introduces students to sustainability - the idea that economic and social development, along with environmental protection, must be achieved together. Enhanced by illuminating full-color photographs and illustrations, sidebars, a glossary, and other useful study features, this book details how sustainability is gaining ground with individuals, communities, regions, and even nations, and shows readers how they, too, can become involved.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
