Our World Out of Balance: Understanding Climate Change and What We Can Do

(3) 4-6 Illustrated by Laura Fanelli. This engaging book uses magazine-style infographics to depict several consequences of climate change (rising sea levels, desertification, etc.) in a series of two-page spreads. Each topic is presented with an overview alongside a "before and after" illustration and sidebar explaining a particular issue's importance and how things have changed over time. Follow-up spreads use diagrams to show how these problems develop and why they're ongoing. Additional sidebars explain what's being done to combat these challenges and how readers can help. Minoglio's informative, concise text combines with Fanelli's striking full-color illustrations for a worthy introduction to this timely subject. Websites, a glossary, and index are appended.
