Using the same approach to climate change that she did in her first book If Sharks Disappeared author Lily Williams describes the effects of global warming on various species While some short sighted individuals might see the demise of polar bears as singular regrettable of course but having little impact on other animals and nature she points out their struggles and what might happen if too much sea ice melts Not only would these resilient and majestic animals be forced to scavenge for food and move into unfamiliar territory but they would eventually die The loss of polar bears would in turn lead to a flourishing ringed seal population since the bears no longer were dining on them But they too would face problems as the result of climate change as would other species as the land in the Arctic also warmed up making it inhospitable for certain species who would be vulnerable to predators as the result of the loss of their snow cover By the time readers reach the end of the book they will be emotionally wrung out and concerned about just how close Earth is to the tipping point and whether there is enough time to make the changes that are necessary to stop this from happening In simple but effective text and illustrations that clearly show the domino effect this book is clearly a cry for action I cannot imagine anyone reading it and not being moved particularly with that last illustration of a polar bear family resting on a small patch of ice surrounded by sea water and no food in sight Everyone needs to read this book and share it with someone else as well as suggesting that teachers add it to their science classroom library
