This overview book, created in conjunction with The Weather Channel Kids!, compiles pithy and accurate information about the earth’s many quaking, blowing, dousing, burning, and all-around impressive phenomena. Each accessible spread is dominated by a central photo of severe weather and other natural forces in action (or the no-joke consequences) and a main paragraph, straddled by info-laden sidebars, lucid examples set off in boxed asides, and additional “Fab Facts.” As a result, the overall presentation is a little scattered, but the information is solid and will attract browsers while also serving as a nice one-volume supplemental resource for reports and projects. While readers will need a more specialized book for a deeper comprehension of the intricacies behind any one topic (such as volcanoes, plate tectonics, thunderstorms, avalanches, etc.), this is a fine book to form a bedrock for earth-science and environmental studies. A comprehensive glossary is the lone piece of back matter. Grades 5-8. --Ian Chipman
