School Library Journal,
November 2013

“With its neon covers, vibrant photography, and ‘Let’s Do It’ text boxes that contain accessible tips for conserving and recycling, this series will grab children’s attention. Each page is dynamic and energetic without being cluttered or busy. Headings such as ‘Use Every Drop’ speak volumes and correspond perfectly to the illustrations. [Take Care of the Earth] introduces the overarching theme of the series, while the other titles zoom in on three ways to participate in environmentalism. Each book explains a scientific concept, such as the water cycle, using clear diagrams and explanations. Vocabulary words such as ‘evaporate’ are set apart in bold font and defined in language children will easily grasp. These scientific sections seamlessly transition into text that offers practical advice about conservation. The blend of theoretical and practical makes this a very readable series. Children will not be overloaded with dense information, but will gain enough facts to be inspired to act. ”—Series Made Simple

Booklist Review,
February 15, 2014

“The premise of [Save Energy Every Day] in the Kids Save the Earth series is inherent in the title: kids are told what energy is, how we use it, and where it comes from. Gagne also does a serviceable job demystifying the connection between daily life and fossil fuels. Relying on illustrations to show how power plants and wind turbines work, Gagne explores both traditional and alternative sources of energy (solar and wind power). However, more difficult concepts are dispatched quickly in favor of individual ways one can save energy at home (dry clothes on a clothes line!), in school (have a contest!), and even on the road (bike!). Additionally, green boxes strewn throughout the text gleefully cheer, “Let’s do it!” and direct readers to turn off lights, check windows for leaks, and use energy-efficient bulbs. Those new to the eco-friendly game will find many opportunities here to curb bad habits and contribute to the future of the planet. ”—Courtney Jones

Library Media Connection,
August/September 2014

“This is a series of very simple books that outline things that children can do to help ‘save the earth.’ These are good beginning informational texts with colorful pictures, bright text boxes, and helpful explanations, diagrams, and ideas. A summary page at the end of each book gives a list of things children can do to “get started today” to help save the earth. The series would be exceptionally good for Kindergarten and first grade classes who are studying environmental awareness. Recommended. ”—Jolene C. DeFranco, Librarian, Harmony School of Fine Arts and Technology, Houston, Texas
