About the Book

Read and find out about the greenhouse effect and what you can do to help fight global warming in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.

The temperature on Earth is rising. At the North Pole, ice is melting. In the ocean, water is getting higher. And in some places around the world, whole rivers might even dry up. But why is this happening, and what can we do to stop it?
