Description

The Sky's Not Falling! is the balanced alternative to Scholastic's fear-inducing global warming kids' book.Debuting the same day as celebrity wife Laurie David's Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming, The Sky's Not Falling! is for parents sick of seeing their kids indoctrinated by has-been politicians and Hollywood stars. The Sky's Not Falling! is everything Scholastic's book should be - fact-filled, apolitical, fun and optimistic about the future of our magnificent, ever-changing planet. In The Sky's Not Falling! author Holly Fretwell, a natural resources management expert, shows kids 9-12 that its human ingenuity combined with an enviropreneurial spirit will lead us to a bright environmental future.Parents confronted by Photoshopped pictures of drowning animals and faux documentaries will embrace a book that educates rather than manipulates. Holly Fretwell brings real credentials to the debate, giving kids the scoop, not just about global warming, but the real-world consequences of the Left's responses to it.
