Book Review by Bob Walch

We know climate change is creating a warmer world. This picture book explains how various animals have had to adapt to survive and how that adaptation will have to continue if they want to avoid becoming extinct.

Some of the animals mentioned in the book include the Golden Toad of Costa Rica, the Arctic Red Fox,  both the Pocket and Pinyon Mouse, the Yellow-bellied Marmot found in the Rocky Mountains and the Loggerhead Turtle.

The effect of climate change on coral reefs, cold weather animals like Polar Bears, Walruses and Penguins, and various types of sea creatures is also touched upon by the author.

“Global warming will continue to change the world in which we live. By learning how plants and animals are responding to these changes, we can better understand what to expect in a future warmer world,” writes the author.  This simple picture book offers youngsters a simple look at what some of the negative effects of this warming trend on the animal world will be.
