That's How Things Work: Marvel of Modern Technology

Part of the 'How do Things Work' series, this title focuses on modern technology. From the award winning publishing house Teri.

It is in the hands of the children to try to change their own lives towards greater protection of the environment and all our natural resources. They can also take active part in changing the thinking of adults. Children can take a lead in organizing actions at the community level, which support conservation of resources, recycling of waste water, and greater use of renewable sources of energy. This series of children's books is aimed of providing children knowledge on what needs to be done in all these areas. I hope those who read these books will not only enjoy them greatly but also feel inspired to implement actions that are described in these pages, so that we create a beautiful, peaceful, and healthy future for the human race.
