" I thought it was an alright book but was also boring. I still have a favourite part though because I loved the picture of the art in the fourteenth street subway in New York. " said.

" well actully i did not read this book and the thing is i want to read it and this book looks a bit short to me so it will take about 2-3 days only " said.

" "...this is quite a marvelous book about the work that goes into building a variety of structures and how many of them are being built greener."Excerpt from Original Content. " said.

" I personaly did not like the book that much because its in a girl piont of veiw and in one part shes talking about her school trip to Ottowa, then it talks about her school progect then it talks about how she is mad at her teacher. It jumps around from topic to topic to much. " said.

" This book was good. I really liked that it was from a girls point of view and it was in the form of her scrapbook. I thought it made learning about these buildings more fun. I enjoyed learning about all the differnt ecofriendly buildings in the world. There are so many! I really liked learning about the domes and how they are made of triangles because they are sturdy. " said.

" This book is from the piont of view of a girl named Corry Lapont who goes arond the world with her family and makes this scrapbook.In it she puts all of the buildings shes seen and explanes why they are ecofriendly.From this book i learned that there is a type of bridge called cantilever its hard to explane what it looks like but its on page 18.I also learned that there are differant truss designs plus this book has progects you can do to see if what she is talking about is true. " said.

" This is a great piece of non-fiction. I wasn't sure I was going to like the voice of the character who narrates the book but within a few pages I was used to it. The narration doesn't get too trite or condescending. The information and presentation are engaging and entertaining as well as just plain interesting. A worthy purchase for a K-8 library. The book will support curricular work on structures and materials, sustainability and interdependence as well as some work on forces and energy. " said.

"Twelve-year-old Corry Lapont, an aspiring engineer who plans to design buildings that are environmentally friendly, keeps a scrapbook of postcards and photos of structures that are well built but also take a green perspective on their designs. Readers will enjoy following Corry all around the world, from the Hearst Tower in New York City to Tapei 101 in Tapei, Taiwan as she takes a look at skyscrapers. Later, in the book, Cory describes different types of bridges, tunnels, domes, dams, dikes, locks, and levees. Not only are the cartoon-like illustrations colorful and appealing, but the fact that the book also contains activities that enable readers to understand concepts such as croos-bracing or why suspension bridges need anchorages. What an enjoyable treat this book is, filled with up-to-date information about dome houses and the levees in New Orleans. " said.
