While prehistoric people lived lightly on the planet, the exponential increase in human population has brought substantial, increasingly problematic changes. This book offers an overview of changes over the millennia and points out the threats to animal species as well as people when there's not enough water or arable land to support populations. Jones emphasizes that the poor bear an unfair burden when scarce natural resources lead to war or shortages of water, food, education, health care, and jobs. On the positive side, she points out ways that people, even kids, can help, such as growing food to share or aiding refugees. Very present in the discussions, Jones shares her experiences, reflections, and photos of family and friends, while encouraging readers to find practical ways to address issues such as fairness in sharing scarce natural resources. The last chapter introduces a number of young people who have done just that. The informative text is very readable and, with many color photos and other design elements, the book looks inviting. A forward-looking guide to sharing the planet. Grades 4-6. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
