Planet Ark: Preserving Earth's Biodiversity by Adrienne Mason
This book explores the concept of the earth as an ark and we, its citizens, as the Noahs that need to protect our ark. The book talks about biodiversity - what it is, examples of it on our planet, and how we can protect it. There is a lot of information packed into this book.
And...that's where it bogged down for me. If I have a student who is really interested in biodiversity and "saving the planet" then he will find this book worthwhile but it will be a hard sell. I didn't find it "fun" and it wasn't meant to be. It is a good, solid informational book.
I always feel guilty when I croak. This wasn't bad...I just don't feel a ribbett bubbling up.
