While preparing for a workshop that would showcase math and science resources for elementary and middle grades, I became reacquainted with Our Living Earth : a story of people, ecology, and preservation by Yann Arthus-Bertrand (363.7 DeO 2008). I’m really diggin’ it.
It’s a slightly oversized book with eight chapters centered around big topics, each broken down to several smaller segments that touch on different aspects of the bigger issue. Added interest is provided by lots of good photographs, especially of the oversized variety that I’m a big fan of. In addition to the photos, I really think the small aside bubbles, containing pertinent statistics and facts are very interesting.
