The Magic School Bus and the climate challenge, by Joanna Cole
I like the crazy teacher in this series (Miss Frizell). I would recommend all the series. This one helps the kids find out about climate change and how they can plan how to prevent climate change. They even got to go on tv!

Ivy + Bean : what’s the big idea?, by Annie Barrows
I enjoyed this story by Annie Barrows.This story was telling about global warming.Ivy and Bean were worried because the animals were in danger due to the environment getting less cold.Bean and Ivy had to find a solution to the problem.Nancy and her friend did not care about nature.At the end ,Ivy and Bean found a solution!!!!
I really liked the part when they found a solution.Children should read this story because it has facts —-but fun facts about nature…
