This is a very beautifully illustrated childrens book about the climate change. Each page goes over a different area of the world and explains how it is effected by global warming. For instance one page describes the Caribou in Alaska and how since it is warmer the beetles are reproducing more and in turn eating all the trees and "this makes the caribou hungry". The back of the book then exclaims that HUMANS CAN save the animals from around the world. This is a great scientific book that should...more

The text Earth Feeling the Heat by Brenda Z. Guiberson is an incredible children's book. The illustrations by Chad Wallace looked so realistic in which caused the readers heart strings to be tugged on even more because they could see how helpless the animals truly are. Children learn by repetition so it was a great addition to the book when at the end of every passage the author asked the reader who can help this specific animal/insect. Children are always willing to help those in need especiall...more

This book shows the impact that global warming has had on animals such as polar bears. This is important to discuss with your class because of the weather changes that have occurred in the past few years. After reading this book to my class, I would have them make lists of ways that they can help to save the planet. After creating their lists I would have the students create posters of...more

Mainly, I thought it was depressing. Page after page of animals in trouble and then at the very end, one boring page (lazily illustrated compared the rest of the book) about what you can do to help. Let's weigh the children's tiny hearts down with sadness and then toss off a few energy-saving tips! Not the way I'd want to talk to kids about global climate change, unless I was trying to make them cry.

Useful to teach younger students what global warming is. It is a very general book that includes facts, but keeps it in language younger students could understand. Grades k-2.
