Summary
Discover how geologists study rocks to learn more about Earth, from how it was formed to how it has grown and changed over millions of years.A True Book: Earth Science series presents fascinating facts and fun activities that will engage the budding earth scientist, while exploring the fields of geology, meteorology, ecology, and more. This series includes an age appropriate (grades 3-5) introduction to curriculum-relevant subjects and a robust resource section that encourages independent study. Readers will learn about the causes of earthquakes, volcanoes, and other Earth-shaking disasters.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Much like the other subsets, these volumes in the A True Book: Earth Science series are models of introducing a broad range of topics while still being concise and graphically pleasing to boot. Each book boasts a layout that never feels the least bit lazy and is kept fresh with sharp pictures, fun time lines, and breakout sections isolating the most dazzling of subtopics. Geology sounds rather dull until you remember our old friend the volcano. Ranging from the history of continental drift (colleagues thought scientist James Hutton had lost his mind with the theory) to recovery of space rocks, this is surprisingly invigorating material. A bright, appealing package perfect for writing reports or for following individual interests.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"
