Is There a Future for Fossil Fuels?

“...Young readers will find these books informative and easy to read...A vivid picture of how fossil fuels were formed millions of years ago is coupled with a list of major deposits around the world, and the role that fossil fuels play in the production of electricity is described...Colorful, realistic action pictures, sidebars, and conservation tips reiterating the theme "We Can Do It" are placed strategically throughout the book, and conservation is emphasized...This is an excellent resource to help young readers become cognizant of the effects of fossil fuels on the environment and to become advocates for sustainability.” —National Science Teacher's Association 05/10
