From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–8—The concepts covered in these titles support the National Science Educational Standards. Both books open with an introduction, which is followed by six chapters of text. The small but outstanding color photographs add to the information and will attract students. Hantula includes material on how rocks are formed, their various types, and how the Earth continues to change through erosion, faults, landslides, earthquakes, fossils, extinction, and the movement of continents. Tables of popular gemstones, diagrams of the rock cycle, maps, and short biographies of scientists James Hutton, Nicolaus Steno, and Louis Agassiz are helpful additions to the general text. However, more detailed information for the same age group may be found in John Farndon's e.guides Rock and Mineral (DK, 2005). Smuskiewicz explains the importance of water in our lives, the properties that make it unique, its power to erode and destroy, pollution, climate, rivers, lakes, oceans, wetlands, global warming, and the search for water in outer space. Ray A. Gallant's Water: Our Precious Resource (Benchmark, 2003) is similar in scope for this age group. Good purchases for libraries that need to supplement their earth-science collections.—Ann Joslin, Fort LeBoef School District, Waterford, PA
