Its board covers shaped and illustrated to resemble the Earth's globe, this imaginative child's introduction to geography and earth science mixes heavy die-cut board pages with standard paper pages. It describes the Earth's continents, land formations, and oceans, and shows the Earth's position in the solar system. Vivid color illustrations with descriptive captions show and explain the plants and animals indigenous to rain forests, deserts, temperate zones, and polar regions. Simplified but scientifically accurate descriptions also explain volcanoes, the Earth's tectonic plates, and the formation of mountains. Here is an attractive and informative book, suitable for both home and classroom. (Ages 8-11)
