by Precious McKenzie

Part of a Series: Eye to Eye with Endangered Habitats.

Majestic photos depicting towering rivers of ice open this title, making the later information on the disappearance of glaciers, and the photos of naked green landscapes, all the more poignant. After describing, in just enough detail for the age group, the different types of glaciers, how they are formed, and how they affect the landscapes they abrade, McKenzie switches to a discussion of the importance of glaciers and the looming dangers posed by their demise. “Looking Toward the Future” closes the book, letting students know what they can do to help stop the devastation. A valuable look at a neglected aspect of environmental change.
