"This book was a hit from the day it arrived. For the first week or two, my 6th grader would pick up the book and just read sections of it on his own. When we officially started reading Energy for Keeps much later, it hadn't lost any of its appeal. We enjoyed all of the sections; enough information was provided about each topic without becoming boring. The illustrations are fabulous! They alone make the book worth its price as they make the different forms of energy production very understandable. In fact, my high school senior picked up the book after hearing that the Japanese nuclear power plants were in danger of melting down. She didn't understand how nuclear power plants worked and wasn't satisfied with any of the explanations on the web. The section on nuclear power in this book answered all of her questions. I would recommend this book to everyone, not just students; in today's world, we all need to become energy savvy."
- Angela W., homeschool teacher
"Energy for Keeps is a great book. I especially liked the solar and wind sections, and also learning how energy is made from big turbines in all the different power plants. The fun drawings helped me understand the technology even more."
- Daniel W., 6th grade homeschool student
"I've shared your book with a bunch of colleagues and we all think it's a great resource for teachers."

"A marvelous collection of knowledge on renewable energy. I am a teacher in Ireland and have been trying to source a textbook that would be both as informative and interesting as this book. I like the format and it is a very easy read. It is obvious that a lot of work has gone into the publication and congratulations to the authors and editor."
