A noteworthy review of Go Green! from Library Media Connection on May 1, 2012
Each title contains twelve things readers can do to make a difference; some are habits a child alone could change, others require adult assistance. Each suggestion is supported by facts or statistics. A full-page spread is devoted to each of the tips, with text opposite a large color photo. Each book also gives at least one example of elementary-aged kids who have taken action. This series could be a useful resource for teachers looking for ideas to get students involved in community projects. Bibliography. Glossary. Table of Contents. Index.
A noteworthy review of Go Green! from School Library Journal on November 1, 2011
Each book opens with a quick overview, introducing environmental concepts such as global warming, conservation, and organic farming. Twelve green tips are showcased in separate spreads, with a captioned photograph facing the text page, which gives eco-friendly advice and reasons why the suggestion helps the Earth. There is some duplication of the tips among the books, making the set repetitive. The photographs faithfully represent the advice, often with lackluster results, e.g., images of a closed curtains and newspaper stacks. Case studies highlight interesting environment projects by children and schools worldwide. A page listing 10 to 15 more green ideas appears at the end of each book. Buy where demand requires or books featuring eco-friendly advice need updating.
