KIRKUS REVIEW

 One of three pictorial introductions to environmental problems that present useful project ideas and inspire stories of ``kids in action,'' along with conveying the usual horrors of pollution and destruction. Focusing on global problems, this volume touches on air and water pollution, tree conservation, solid waste problems, and children's activism. The projects aren't detailed; readers are invited to contact organizations for more information. Though the authors are unabashed environmentalists, they encourage letter-writers to research all sides of a question. Topic overviews are in simpler language and larger type than captions and accounts of specific problems. An attractive, well-bound book on recycled, acid-free paper with color photos and cartoonish illustrations featuring a multicultural cast and concluding with an excellent outline for an ``Earthwise Action Plan'' to guide readers in creating their own projects. Not enough information for in-depth reports, but- -like Earthwise at Play (wildlife) and Earthwise at Home (household ecology)--good for stimulating interest while pointing readers to more specific sources. (Nonfiction. 6-9)
