    I think this book is good for kids to do some research on the air pollution, but actually it is for kids, so there is only some basic information. There's some example for air pollution, but not really enough for giving the information to wrote paper. After all I think it is good for kids to learn air pollution.

    yalena's book review was featured in Overpopulation (Global Issues).
    This book is about overpopulation.It says that the earth has too many people and the limited food is not enough. Some countries have too many people and become Megacities and there aren't enough job opportunities for citizens , so it makes some poor people can't have the basic human rights. Not being able to work to live makes them turn to crime.What we should do next is controlling overpopulation, and making everyone possess basic human right. I think now I can do something like gardening and growing my own food. In fact, many cities across the world are now developing the public land into community farms and gardens so that I can not only help reducing the problem of lacking food but also enjoy the healthy vegetables.

    charlesh20's book review was featured in Smoking Stinks.
    The book Smoking Stinks by Kim Gosselin, this book is about Maddie and Alex know first-hand how smoking is affecting them. Maddie can't sleep at night because of Grandpa Norman's cough, and her allergies always seem to get worse when Grandpa Norman smokes. Alex's house smells like a chimney and, due to his asthma, he has a harder time breathing when he has to inhale the smoke from his mother's cigarettes. Maddie and Alex decide to work together on a health report for school about smoking. They learn there are many dangers from smoking, both for those who smoke and those around them who get the secondhand smoke. They learn about the effects of smoke -- the sicknesses that can result and even the "outer" effects like the stains on Grandpa Norman's teeth and fingers, and the smell of smoke everywhere. When it is time for Maddie and Alex to present their report to the class, they invite Grandpa Norman and his doctor, Dr. Parkin, to be guest speakers. They show the class pictures of healthy and unhealthy lungs and tell them about the dangers of secondhand smoke and chewing tobacco. Grandpa Norman even brings his nightshirt to school for them to smell. Grandpa Norman admits to the children that he started smoking because he thought it was cool and all his friends smoked. He says his nicotine addiction keeps him from being able to quit. "There's nothing good about smoking," Grandpa Norman tells the class. "The smartest thing you kids can do is to NEVER start." He then pledges to himself, Maddie, Dr. Parkin, and the whole class to quit smoking. This book is a fantastic book, it teaches the readers smoking is bad and how it affect's the body. The anti-smoking message is the main purpose of this book and I would recommend this book to all the ages around. Everyone knows about smoking and everyone should learn it.

    The Ghost of the Gray luck is a mystical book, it is talking about As the new kid in town, Neil Cady wants to see Graylock for himself. Especially since rumor has it that the building is haunted. He's got fresh batteries in his flashlight, a camera to document the adventure, and a new best friend watching his back. Neil might think he's prepared for what he'll find in the dark and decrepit asylum. But he's certainly not prepared for what follows him home. It is a really cool book, I recommend u to read this awesome book!

    In this book Greg Heffley is in big trouble. School property has been damaged, and Greg is the prime suspect. But the crazy thing is, he’s innocent. Or at least sort of. The authorities are closing in, but when a surprise blizzard hits, the Heffley family is trapped indoors. Greg knows that when the snow melts he’s going to have to face the music, but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family for the holidays? I like the way the author wrote this book, and the style of this book is really awesome, I recommend it to some readers who like Jeff Kinney's book.
