Praise for Laura Perdew for Extinction

National Science Teachers Association Recommends
"This book uses the concept of extinction to teach a little chemistry, a little climatology, paleontology, biology (biodiversity), ecology, and a lot of geology. The science information is historical and current, drawing on three-dimensional learning, incorporating science practices to determine what factors affect extinction in general and specifically. The integration of concepts help bring the science alive and relevant."


"Nomad applies its dependable activity-book format to the new Built It Environmental Science series (4 titles). Here biodiversity is placed under the microscope--sometimes literally--in a text that makes daunting concepts, such as evolution, levels of biodiversity (genetic, species, or ecosystem), and why biodiversity matters, easy to understand without sacrificing scientific precision. . . By book's end, readers will truly understand what biodiversity is, its importance to the health of the planet, and humans' impact on the complex natural systems where it thrives."
Booklist Top 10 Books on the Environment & Sustainability for Youth: 2020. "Activities and accessible text bring the importance and complexity of biodiversity to upper-elementary and middle-school students."
