Earth-Friendly Buildings Bridges and More: The Eco-Journal of Corry Lapont by Etta Kaner,Stephen MacEachern



Stephen MacEachern has illustrated more than 10 children's books. He is also a web and print designer and has taught illustration at the Sheridan Institute, where he himself studied. Stephen lives in Erin, Ontario, with his wife and two children. Not every page of "Earth-friendly Buildings, Bridges and More" contains Earth-friendly content. Nonetheless, this is quite a marvelous book about the work that goes into building a variety of structures and how many of them are being built greener. Though this is a nonfiction work, the basic premise is that an imaginary girl has been traveling with her engineer parents, and we are reading her scrapbook. She is one enthusiastic kid. Among the things I liked about "Earth-friendly B, B and M"

Illustrated by Stephen MacEachern. Toronto, ON: Kids Can Press, 2012. The rail cars carry the muck out of the mountain. TBMs build supports for the tunnel walls at the same time as they bore the tunnel. More careers are highlighted with respect to construction of the familiar types of bridges. Tunnels are examined for their diverse uses and the gigantic equipment needed to dig them. Domes – from stadiums to homes – are shown. Different types of dams, dikes and levees around the world, and explanations of how locks work complete the book

Earth-Friendly Buildings, Bridges and More: The Eco-Journal of Corry Lapont. by Etta Kaner; Stephen MacEachern, illus. Through Corry’s journal, Kaner introduces the science behind the architecture of green buildings and structures, exploring the physics involved in their design and construction.

The Eco-Journal of Corry Lapont. by Etta Kaner & illustrated by Stephen MacEachern. Kaner, the Toronto-based winner of numerous nonfiction book awards, introduces readers to Corry Lapont, the clever 12-year narrator of this "Eco-Journal" and an always-curious wayfinder through a brave new world of "smart" architectural projects and principles. Along with Corry and her wiseacre sidekick, kid brother Riley, readers see and learn about site selection, planning, designing, the integration of green engineering solutions (like using rainwater for cooling) and nifty details on the how-tos of constructing eco-friendly structures.

Love this book. Using it in my high school class, but can use it for a student that is very low acheiving. There are experiments through out the book that kids can try. It has great introductory information for the higher acheiving students. Helps me as the teacher to get some background knowledge too on the topic.

Though this is a nonfiction work, the basic premise is that an imaginary girl has been traveling with her engineer parents, and we are reading her scrapbook. She is one enthusiastic kid. Among the things I liked about "Earth-friendly B, B and M":

While there is certainly content related to large buildings being made more green, there's also material about designing buildings to withstand earthquakes and storms. It's as if technology is working with Earth, not against it.
It gives readers a good idea of the number of people, the variety of engineers, for instance, necessary just for the planning of a big construction project. This is important because it helps to explain why building takes so long and is so expensive.
Technology has had a bad rap for many years now. The 1950's were filled with movies about science gone amock. I've read that The China Syndrome was a turning point in how science was perceived by the public in the '70s, that technology would lead to very bad things. First some guy is messing around with creating life, and the next thing you know, dinosaurs are coming back and eating people. But in "Earth-friendly Buildings, Bridges and More," technology is portrayed as a good thing. Mom, Dad, an uncle, and a cousin are all engineers, all involved in creating or fixing things. Even if you're not a fan of tech, this is different.

This is my 7 year old son's favorite book. He begs me to read it to him at night. It contains a lot of information but is very accessible to young kids. It gives you a great overview about the different careers that come into play when building structures.
