School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

“These appealing books show young readers how they can have a positive impact on the world.” —School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Booklist

“Aimed at getting the youngest children to think about energy conservation, this pleasantly illustrated entry in the Planet Protectors series follows a young boy named Tyler through one day at school and home as he monitors energy use as a member of his school’s Power Patrol.” —Booklist

Science Books & Films

“The books lend themselves to helping young children conceptualize ideas about the environment, as well as learn about the structure of an informational text. Teachers can share the books aloud with young children, or independent readers could read the books using the chapter by chapter format. These books will raise the environmental awareness of young children and help them recognize ways they can help take care of the planet.” —Science Books & Films
