A highly edcuational and conscientious-minded introduction

Everglades Forever: Restoring America's Great Wetland by Trish Marx is impressively presented for young readers augmented by photojournalist Cindy Karp's vivid photography. In Everglades Forever, children will learn of a class study by the students of an elementary school class on the majestic wetlands in Homestead, Florida. They will learn of the negative effects of pollution and disrupted water flow, and how people, environmental agencies, and governments seek to control such damage. And they will learn of the Everglades Restoration Plan, an ecological intervention designed to restore and preserve the natural water flow, plants, and animals of the Everglades. A highly edcuational and conscientious-minded introduction to one of Earth's environmental wonders, is especially recommended for school and community library Environmental Studies collections for children.

An Exciting Trip Through the Everglades

Trish Marx takes us on an exciting trip through the Everglades, where we learn painlessly about an area unique in the world, a eco-system that is really "a wide, slow-moving river," filled with plants and animal life found nowhere else on Earth! Our fellow travellers are students from a school perched on the eastern edge of this environment. As fifth-graders Robert, Tiler, Vedantee and Conrado begin to appreciate the significance of their neighborhood and want to participate in preserving it, so do we. Marx has done a first-rate job of involving young readers in the preservation and restoration of the Everglades. This award-winning book should have a place in the ecology section of every library. Photographer Karp's images enhance and complement the the text.
