Young Reader Reaction: Our Planet: Change is Possible is very realistic and practical; it is one of those typical bathroom reader books with random and fun facts that can keep the reader entertained for a few minutes. However, it is not meant to be a continuous book that one would read for two hours at a time; that being the case, buying the book, as opposed to borrowing from the library, would be the best choice in order to take the time read little by little. It gives the reader hope, knowing that the many users of MySpace truly care and all together, a difference is possible. The recommended audience for this book is ages 8 and older for the sake of the difficulty, but the content is great for all ages.
