When the weather changes daily, how do we really know that Earth?s climate is changing? Here is the science behind the headlines - evidence from flowers, butterflies, birds, frogs, trees, glaciers and much more, gathered by scientists from all over the world, sometimes with assistance from young "citizen-scientists." And here is what young people, and their families and teachers, can do to learn about climate change and take action. Climate change is a critical and timely topic of deep concern, here told in an age-appropriate manner, with clarity and hope. Kids can make a difference!This book combines the talents of two uniquely qualified authors: Lynne Cherry, the leading children?s environmental writer/illustrator and author of The Great Kapok Tree, and Gary Braasch, award-winning photojournalist and author of Earth Under Fire: How Global Warming is Changing the World.

"This beautiful and informative book fills a major gap in environmental writing for children ... The overall tone - urgent without being shrill, hopeful without being complacent - strikes me as just right. I would happily recommend it."
