Amstutz, L.J. How Can We Reduce: Transportation Pollution? 40pgs Lerner, 2016. $19.99 NONFICTION
In this book readers discover how the transportation industry
contributes to pollution, starting with the manufacturing process as well as
addressing the air and noise pollution. Each chapter addresses how humans can
reduce this, but it doesn’t get child specific until the last chapter, where it
offers some great options.
This book provides a great overview, I wish there was more
children could do about this issue, but its one of those areas that can be
challenging. I was happy to see a chapter at the end that came up with some
great options for student readers. I was also pleased to see noise pollution
brought up, as that is often ignored. A great book for your environment and
earth day collection.
