book for exposing YA readers middle to high school to the world Emerald Lizard of facts and research I highly recommend it if for nother reason than that The following are responses from a class for which I read this book Dr A You brought up the various types Five Busy Beavers of pieces Fleischman has created as well as the issuef the design Fratello clima chetati... of this particular book While I found Eyes Wide Open to be interesting in its visual business it s definitely going to cause some YA readers to have fits as they try to navigate it It actually felt like a web site with the links exploded than a book in fact I think it would work a lot better as an interactive piece than as a static textOne reason is that it would allow readers to rollver The Invisible Arab or click through to find definitionsr examples rather than having them splashed across a page Dream of Wings or stuck in a marginAnother reason is that making the piece digital would allow the author to embed videos and links rather than simply referencing them and hoping the audience will go track them down Third and perhaps most importantly by making this a static text Fleischman has given up the ability to keep the information updatedutside Duck's Vacation of publishing revised editions There were several points while reading this book that I found myself going Wait that s not true that decision wasverturnedthat issue was decided a while ago r But what about from last year I am not a super informed environmentalist but I found myself wanting to see an updated version f this work that would include follow ups O Guarda do Pomar on somef the points raised particularly regarding the rise in the use The Green Mountain Boys of solar and window energy and the relatively rapid spreadf electric vehicles If this was a digital property though the information could not Proverbios only be amended uickly and easily to keep YA readers up to date with the latest developments in these important issues but it would also allow for expansionn particular topics and the introduction f new topics as they come up Nevertheless this is an interesting engaging and important YA book It is very accessible and to my mind it provides an excellent introduction to both environmental issues and information literacy Sarah I like your S particularly the image you chose for the background juxtaposing a mountain with a city nicely captures the content f this book I also agree that the section Bed of Nails on gauging the reliabilityf sources that is included #At The End In Addition To Those #the end in addition to those elements being woven throughout the work is noteworthy I plan to specifically share those last few pages with my students to help them think about the nonfiction

than down to its audience I must admit that there were places where I felt EWO was a bit preachy and it was clear that Fleischman was advancing his Buddy: The First Seeing Eye Dog own personalpinions
