Over the past several decades, our world has been warming at a faster rate than ever before. Winters are shorter. Sea levels have risen. Territories of predators and prey have shifted. To survive in this new environment, animals everywhere have had to adapt, or face extinction. Complemented by Jamie Hogan's rich collage illustrations, A Warmer World offers young readers a clear-eyed look at the effects of climate change on animals around the world-- This informative introduction to climate change and its affects on wildlife will engage young nature-lovers as they learn about ecosystems, environments, and global warming.
Species by species, from polar bear to butterfly, acclaimed nonfiction children's author Caroline Arnold describes how warmer weather alters ecosystems, forcing animals to adapt or become extinct. Arnold's clear and straightforward text is complemented by Jamie Hogan's collage-style illustrations. A glossary and listing of websites and books for further exploration is included. Reminiscent of a nature journal, this book is sure to inspire readers to start their own research into this significant global issue and think about ways they can help our planet.

Our worlds climate is...
Our world's climate is rapidly changing. Global warming is not only effecting us but also the animals and other small creatures that share our planet. The environmental changes are so great that some creatures are gone all together. In 1964 a biologist working in Costa Rica found a tiny yellow toad that thrived and laid eggs in pools of water. As the earth warmed the puddles dried and since 1989 the toads have not been seen anywhere. As the world gets warmer animals move to find new places to live, but plants can not, in some instances plant seeds are carried off to other locations by wind, water and animals. In Yosemite National Park squirrels and mice are moving to higher ground to more favorable habitats. Small shrimp-like animals called Krill feed on algae and other small organisms under the ice. With less ice Krill don't survive and neither will the animals that feed on them. As the world warms so do the earths waters. As a result, spring comes earlier and winter later. This season change can create droughts and effects corals, fish and many other species. Arnold introduces young readers to the world of global warming and its effects on humans, animals and plants. Soft pastel illustrations are warm and inviting for young readers to see the specific plants and animals and better understand their plight. Arnold has also supplied young minds with a glossary of terms in the back of the book as well as a list of website resources and others books that cover the subjects of climate changes and global warming. This is an excellent book to educate children on global warming. Parent and teachers will find this to be a handy tool for any home or classroom.
