Islands Inside Out

"Islands Inside Out begins with the Galapagos before examining examples of barrier, coral, and volcanic islands, among others. Invasive species, changing sea levels, and climate change are the ecological trouble-spots here. Each book ends with an activity, usually requiring adult supervision; a glossary; and additional resources. A solid primer with great visual appeal." - Booklist, 05/15
