I'm writing a review for the local riverkeeper's newsletter and would appreciate any suggestions of books for young people (still in print) on conservation and ecology.

Reviews:
The Adventures of The Sizzling Six are ideal read-aloud book for parents and teachers. A superb ending that kids will love. A well researched and balanced presentation, grounded in solid facts and real conservation issues that educates and engages the young adult reader.
Cleo Lackey, Media Specialist, Brookwood Forest Elementary School,
The way you wove lessons in ecology, economics, civics, group dynamics, and growing up into a good read accessible—no, engaging—to younger readers, is inspiring. You have developed the skill of making clarity from complexity. George Terrian, environmental architect. For more information on The Adventures of The Sizzling Six, eco mystery series please visit:www.mediamint.net. The Author is available for school presentations

Hello claire.datnow

Perhaps you have not read the previous comments about your posts, or realised that they are flagged as spam, but advertising your own books is not permitted on LT, since it would clutter up valuable exchange of opinion with biased reviews. If you want to continue to tell LT users about your books, please do so on the groups that have been created for that purpose:-

http://www.librarything.com/groups/writersbragandragbag

As others have noted, your reviews are written as if you were the reader, rather than the author. I suggest that you try to be honest about who you are, as an example to your audience.

Thank you
