Booklist Reviews 2010 September #2
Offering both big-picture overviews and high-interest stats for young fact-hounds, titles in the Let's Explore Science series target a broad age range of students. Build It Green introduces concepts of eco-friendly architecture with specific examples, from adobe houses to Earthships, while it talks about the large impact that small home energy-saving adjustments, such as water-conserving toilets, can make. In each title, well-chosen boxed examples, abundant color photos, diagrams, and an appended glossary add interest and support the engaging texts, which employ both unusual facts and direct questions to help young people grasp abstract concepts and develop appreciation for science and technology's marvels.
