Format: Paperback
This book is very useful for children who ask a lot of earth science questions. In fact the whole series of these books is quite nice. I've used them successfully with preschoolers through elementary school age children. The books are not designed as "sit down at group time and read to the class," but in small groups or one-on-one, they work very well.

This book is written for children, I'm 31 and while reading with my son I learned things I didn't know! I recommend it to any parent.

Honestly, I love these books. I bought them on a 4 for 3 special, and couldn't be happier. I am not one to buy books full price either, but these are so perfect for my 5 and 7 year olds I was happy to do it. Our kids are always asking questions, 'why this' and 'why that' and this book series seems to feed their need for answers. The pictures are really sketches, but nicely done and not cartoonish. I actually enjoy reading these to them because I am learning things myself! I could not recommend these books more, a perfect gift for a curious child.

Fantastic introduction to science facts in small, easy to read segments. Beautiful pictures as well. Note: If you buy more than one title, note that they are now produced in two different sizes.
