Read in April, 2011

With cartoonish illustrations, this book tells the story of how one small island in Denmark slowly adopted a sustainable lifestyle. It explains the efforts of one leader as well as the efforts of an entire community to make such a dream become a reality. While this story is told in a friendly and familiar tone suitable for younger children, there are several pages with sidebars explaining different concepts about energy in more typical, formal nonfiction language. Concepts covered include energy dependence, renewable energy, global warming, and wind energy. AR5.4 (L n/a)
