Cover: Power Up!

Each book in this new series provides a basic introduction to a different source of energy. The writing is clear and succinct, and the information is accurate, timely, and unbiased. The plentiful photographs are outstanding and reinforce the text. The author explains the history of each resource, how it is obtained and converted to energy, its environmental impact, and how the resource may be used in the future. Frequent sidebars, such as “21st Century Content” and “Life and Career Skills,” add value and interest. More traditional pronunciation guides in the glossary would be appreciated by those teaching dictionary skills. These attractive, informative books are certain to appeal to young readers and their teachers.
