Steven Milloy has an editorial
on FoxNews that compares Laurie David's Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming
with Holly Fretwell's The Sky's Not Falling
. According to Milloy:
While Scholastic may want to risk its reputation with the David-Gordon book, parents who want their children to have the correct information about the pivotal relationship between atmospheric carbon dioxide and global temperature may want to check out Fretwell's "The Sky's Not Falling."
While Fretwell's book does not come close to matching the number and visual quality of distract-from-the text illustrations that the David-Gordon books contains, Fretwell's strength is that her text is easy to read and, most importantly, is scientifically accurate.
