An engaging introduction to the world's growing population and globalization, the challenges that presents, and the consequences for the natural world.

"This bright and colorful nonfiction book covers the serious topics...concisely and in easy-to-understand language....It presents each topic in a nonpolitical way with just enough information to educate the reader but not overwhelm them....could also be used by teachers to start meaningful conversations in their classrooms..."--School Library Connection, Recommended

Covering topics such as the global food chain and food miles, the gap between the world's richest and poorest people, transportation, tourism, migration and the refugee crisis, and international responses to natural disasters and pandemics, the book also includes positive suggestions to enable readers to make a difference, and project ideas to help them engage with the topic.

From the book: In an ideal world, the Earth's resources would be shared out equally. But the sad truth is that they aren't. Many people live a comfortable life, with everything they need. Others scrape by, with no money for luxuries. And many people live in poverty, facing a daily challenge to survive.
