A Graphic Guide

From the Series The Climate Crisis

  • Interest Level: Grade 3 - Grade 6
  • Reading Level: Grade 4

Forests create the air we need to breathe. They provide shade and homes for people and animals. They give us wood for fuel and for building materials. And they are beautiful spaces! But deforestation means humans are destroying more forests every day.

As towns and cities grow, people take more land from forests. Trees are cleared for space faster than we can replant them. Check out what happens when forests disappear—and if we can reverse what has already been lost.

Author: Christina Hill

Before embracing a career as an author, Christina Hill received a graduate degree in literature. She knew that she had a passion for both education and the written word and discovered that educational publishing is the perfect blend of both. When she is not writing on a variety of subjects from climate change to Shakespeare, Hill can be found hiking, mastering yoga handstands, or walking her playful puppy across the coastline of sunny Southern California.
