Abstract:

1. This series emphasizes the interconnectedness of our world, focusing on how keeping our air, water, land, energy, forests and wildlife healthy is essential to Earth's survival. Readers will learn that how we treat our planet today will affect our lives in the future.

2. The text not only explains the importance of caring for our world but also shows readers how their actions -- no matter how small -- can make a big difference. Boxes labeled "Stop and Think, " "Show Me, " and "You Can Do It" encourage readers to take action.

3. "Read More About It" boxes reference related topics in the book and the pages where they appear.

4. Hands-on projects toward the back of each book help readers apply the concepts they have learned.
