"This clear introduction to the what's and why's of environmental degradation balances sad facts with examples of what can and is being done. A solid pick . . . for its positive approach and breadth."--Kirkus Reviews

"Our World Out of Balance is a wonderful introduction...Unlike so many other books about climate change, it does not traffic in fear. Instead, it presents the facts and shows what young people can do to help build a cleaner, safer and more equitable future for the planet." --Simon Donner, Professor, Climate Scientist, University of British Columbia

"Many of us are overwhelmed by climate change and not too sure of exactly what is happening to our Earth and why. Andrea Minglio and Laura Fanelli have given us a beautiful book that explains how many Earth systems work -- from farms to coral reefs. These are pages readers of every age will want to linger over, marveling at the illustrations and savoring highly understandable explanations of what to do for nature and how. Our World out of Balance above all celebrates the amazing gift of life on Earth and will inspire actions to save it." -- Mary Ellen Hannibal, Stanford Media Fellow and author of Citizen Scientist: Searching for Heroes and Hope in an Age of Extinction
