Praise for the Big Ideas for Little Environmentalists series:

"This valuable series introduces young readers to celebrated environmentalists, describing their awareness and care for nature as children to their inspirational work as adults to protect the Earth. . . Children need to hear these names early on." --School Library Journal

"McQuerry explains in clear, straightforward diction, tracing [Rachel Carson's] thoughts on nature from childhood onward, with interspersed questions directing the audience to consider their own paths: 'What part of nature do you like to watch and learn about?' . . . Rosenthal offers boldly geometric art, with children of varying abilities and skin tones participating in protesting and trash pickup along the intertidal zone. Plants the seeds of environmentalism for listeners new to the subject." --Publishers Weekly on Ecosystems with Rachel Carson
