In Emilee’s opinion:

This book, Global Warming by Lyn Coutts was educational and informative. The photos were spectacular and I enjoyed flipping through and learning new facts about the earth. This book was 32 pages long and was packed full of facts and figures on each page. My favorite part was learning what I can do to help. Did you know that turning televisions, computers, and screens off rather than leaving them on standby could lower electricity use by 9-16% and save money on power fills at the same time? I thought about what I’m doing to help the global warming situation. I thought about all those who are taking an active roll each and every day. I thought about all of the scientist who spend hours researching and trying to fight this issue. I loved reading this book and I definitely recommend it.

In Emilee’s opinion:

Aviation by Toby Reynolds and Paul Calver is another awesome book to have on your bookshelf. It was so educational and  I learned a lot about the history and the different types. I also loved all of the beautiful photos and the “Did you know?” facts.  My favorite page was the “Fact File” about the personal aviation. Did you know that there are all sorts of aircraft that daredevils can use to fly. Some have yet to be fully realized, while others are already flight-ready. Overall, this book helped me realize how many amazing and intelligent people we’ve had on the earth and aviation has taken incredible steps to become the industry we know today.
