Start with this book of 26 puzzles, quizzes, science experiments, and
projects. In no time at all children will find new ways to discover,
explore, enjoy, and protect our planet’s environment.

Editor MacLeod uses crossword puzzles, word searches, mazes, simple
three-step experiments, facts, multiple-choice questions, and other
activities to teach readers how to help the environment. Seven of the
world’s “most important environments” are visited: the city, the
jungle, the polar region, the ocean, the desert, the forest, and space.

Black-and-white illustrations and clearly written text make this book
easy to read and understand. Printed on recycled paper, it explores
current environmental issues and encourages nature study. A list of four
Canadian organizations and associations is provided for readers who want
more information.
