Synopsis

Saving the Earth by Anna Claybourne

100 Facts SAVING THE EARTH is bursting with exactly 100 amazing facts, detailed images and fun activities to help children aged 7+ learn everything they need to know about helping to preserve our planet. # Kids learn more easily with bitesized information.# Photographs and artworks aid children who learn through visual prompts.# Activities allow children to put what they have learned into practice. 100 Facts Saving the Earth includes key topics about our changing planet and future problems, in easily-digestible, numbered facts. Each fact is accompanied by beautiful illustrations and photographs, which add visual meaning to the information for kids. Essential topics covered in 100 Facts Saving the Earth: # Global warming, greenhouse gases and climate change# Our current energy crisis and how to live a much 'greener' life# Worldwide campaigns and sustainable solutions to try to save our environment Examples of 'I don't believe it' fascinating facts: # In a single day a cow can give out 500 litres of methane gas. That's enough to fill more than 100 party balloons! # The river Thames in London has just 10 percent of the pollution it had in the 1950s because of pollution prevention.# In prehistoric times, forests covered more than half of Earth's land. Today, almost half of those forests have gone. Activities to make learning accessible and interactive include: # Quiz question: Which kind of shopping bag is greenest - plastic, paper or cloth?# Make a homemade foot soak out of natural ingredients. All you need is oatmeal, skimmed milk powder and some dried rosemary# Walking instead of using a car reduces the amount of greenhouse gases - Count how many steps you can do in a day

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
