About the Book

Read and find out about why it's so important to decrease our dependence on oil in this colorfully illustrated nonfiction picture book.

Look around to see what uses oil—cars, airplanes, boats, factories, and countless other machines. The world is dependent on oil as its main source of energy. Although oil is plentiful right now, the supply will eventually run out, and even worse, burning oil is very damaging to the environment. What alternatives can help us use less oil and how can we protect the environment?
