"Symbols identify titles that are especially entertaining, factual, or practical (some rate all three!), making this useful for collection development, curriculum tie-ins, and storytime." - Booklist
"This resource for teachers, librarians, environmental educators, and parents organizes and describes some 500 current fiction and nonfiction environmental books, CDs, and DVDs for young people in kindergarten through 12th grade. . . . In each entry, bibliographic material is followed by a basic summary of the item, its features, and best uses. Icons indicate whether it is primarily entertaining, factual, or hands-on and practical. Also included are scripts for storytime activities for younger children, and activities for older children, such as class projects and field trips." - Reference & Research Book News
"This reference will delight educators and professionals interested in making students aware of environmental issues and to help youngsters rediscover the outside and natural worlds around them." - School Library Journal
"An excellent choice for resources that focus on environmental topics, Green Reads is a gold mine for librarians who are educating our next generation about environmental issues. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection
"The easy-to-use author, title, and subject/grade level indexes, as well as the appendix that classifies entries by read-aloud/story time titles, informational/research titles, and titles focusing on ways youth can get involved in conservation efforts will allow librarians and teachers to quickly find age-appropriate titles for science units as well as assist in collection development and ready reference. . . . This title may be a useful selection tool for sixth- through twelfth-grade teachers or librarians in locating lower-level reading and research materials for special-needs students." - VOYA
