My emotions changed from the incredibly emotional height of appreciating the author’s ability to create empathy and scientific facts and urgency in the first half of the book, to feeling somewhat of a repetitive dullness reading different chapters of similar scenarios on the subject. The ending picks up momentum when the author addresses practical actions that the young readers could be part of. As a whole, it is still an outstanding addition to the world of nonfiction for children: handsomely designed and faithfully documented — and it is evident that the author uses the language and a tone that really speaks easily to the young readers: the technical terms are fluidly embedded and explained within the body of the text and there is a strong emotional tug at the readers’ heart for most of the book.
