About the Author

Chris Oxlade is an experienced author of non-fiction books for children. He has written more than 200 titles on science, technology, sports and hobbies, from encyclopedia articles to fun activity books.


K-Gr 2-This series examines the resources that enter and leave our homes. Each title covers where the utilities and items come from, how they arrive at residences, and how they are used. The texts emphasize why we should conserve natural resources and reduce waste, though Garbage neglects to mention composting. Information is presented in a question-and-answer format and follows a logical order. The few sentences on each page are enhanced by color photos or charts. Picture glossaries aid with the comprehension of unfamiliar words, and each title has an activity that students can use to track and reduce their energy use or increase recycling. These volumes lend themselves easily to curriculum use. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
