How Can We Reduce: Transportation Pollution? By L.J. Amstutz –ADVISABLE

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.
