Pped beneath the surface of our planet for millions and millions of yearsNow in a very short time we are digging them up and burning them changing the carbon balance of our planet's air and water What does this mean and what should we do about itUsing simple language and breathtaking paintin Everything needs energy in order to grow and we also need energy to run machines This energy comes from the sun though it may be stored as fossil fuels underground The fossil fuels have stored that energy inside them and it is released when they are burned This book looks at how sunlight energy is stored in fossil fuels explaining photosynthesis and the balance of oxygen on the planet It speaks to the way that oxygen was first released to the atmosphere and the millions of years that it took to create fossil fuels The book then informs readers about the impact of carbon dioxide on the planet and the resulting climate change In the end the book lets readers know that the choice for the future of the planet is theirsBang worked with Chisholm an award winning MIT professor on the information in the book Told from the point of view of the sun the book takes a clear and scientific tone throughout enhanced by the personal point of view The information is compellingly presented and interesting The final pages of the book offer even details about the fossil fuel process for those looking for in depth informationBang s illustrations capture the information of graphs along with an artistic feel She manages to keep it scientific but also speak to the wonder of the process and the beauty of the captured sunlight energy This fourth book in their Sunlight series continues the combination of science beauty and natural wonder Appropriate for ages 5 9

Acclaimed Caldecott Artist Molly Bang teams up with award winning MIT professor Penny Chisholm to present the fascinating timely story of fossil fuelsWhat are fossil fuels and how did they come to exist This engaging stunning book explains how coal oil and gas are really buried sunlight tra This book was the most complex of The Sunlight Series Bang and Chisholm did an admirable job of explaining how fossil fuels are formed and how our use of fossil fuels is changing the earth though I think some young readers might not fully understand some of the terms used such as evolved or be able to grasp the incredibly huge amount of time millions and millions of years is What I liked best is their simple yet striking description of how the earth will be affected by the continuing use of fossil fuels and the increase of CO2 in our atmosphere Further text at the back of the book provides detailed information for advanced students and teachers including alternate sources of energy and ways to conserve energy Using the sun as the narrator of the text made me feel as though I was receiving the information from a higher being or viewpoint which is appropriate for such a huge and global topic Bang s colorful illustrations perhaps too detailed at times helped visualize the complex ideas being addressed I have to recommend this one even to adult readers who need to understand the basics of this topic

    This books takes a basic approach in explaining some very complicated processes but does so in a way that children can understand One needs to consider however that there is still much disagreement even in the scientific community about global warming and fossil fuels and what will happen or is happening as we continue to use fossil fuels to build human society There are a lot of ideas presented here in a beautiful way but not

    I've enjoyed and learned a lot from each of the titles in The Sunlight series This one was no exception to that rule as the text and luminous and sumptuously detailed illustrations make very clear just how important the sun is to our planet The sun narrates the book explaining how fossil fuels were formed and how uickly humans have depleted them While many might argue that there needs to be no worry about this rapid consumption
