Just Grace Goes Green

Charise Mericle Harper, . . Houghton, $15 (178pp) ISBN 978-0-6189-5957-0

Just Grace returns in her fourth outing, which features an environmental theme. When her class begins a unit on “Going Green,” (according to Grace, this does not mean “studying frogs” or “dressing up as Irish leprechauns”), Grace's take-charge attitude and “empathy powers” gain momentum, and she becomes a “superhero of conservation.” Practical information is sprinkled throughout (Grace learns that conservation can also mean holding onto what's important). Sure to please Grace's fans. Ages 6–10. (Feb.)
