Energy book
I love the Oil and Natural gas book. The sections explaining the percentages of energy consumption due to each type of energy are great. The graphs they use are great for use in math, too, because they show information using many different graphical formats. When I taught middle school I used these books as a resource and kids loved them.

Oil and Natural Gas
Oil and Natural Gas book is one that sits on the chalk ledge in my class room to encourage students to pick it up and read it and they do. The book is a great resource and always prompts many questions and good discussions. I would love more copies.

Great resource for kids!
I used the Oil and Natural Gas book with my students when they did their fossil fuel research projects. The book is written at a non-technical level, and has great industry images to look at. Highly recommend for teachers!
