Earth-Friendly Buildings, Bridges and More: The Eco-Journal of Corry Lapont

Etta Kaner, illus. by Stephen MacEachern. Kids Can, $18.95 (64p) ISBN 978-1-55453-570-5
In this mock scrapbook, a cartoon girl named Corry Lapont provides a photographic tour of green structures around the globe. Corry describes skyscrapers like the Hearst Tower in New York City, designed for reduced electricity use, and Torre Agbar in Barcelona, which contains solar cells on its outer walls. In addition to her insights, several sidebars, charts, and comic strips examine tunnels and subways, geo-desic domes, and dams. Kaner offers a detailed introduction to green technology for readers interested in the environment and architecture. Ages 8–12. (Apr.)
