9781482447033: How Coal Is Formed (From the Earth: How Resources Are Made)

Coal is a natural resource millions of years in the making. Since over 40 percent of the worlds electricity comes from burning coal, it remains an important, though sometimes controversial, energy source. The processes that transform organic remains into coal, coal mines, and the carbon cycle are important topics covered in this valuable volume. Readers will learn about the pollution attributed to the burning of coal as well as about coal alternatives. Graphic organizers, instructive photographs, and thoughtful sidebars help present a well-balanced look at this relevant and timely subject.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–7—While geologic resources may not be the first topic to spring to tween minds when considering exciting sciences, the extraction, refining, and uses of minerals and fossil fuels is made quite interesting in these volumes. Each book addresses a specific topic and enlivens it with charts, diagrams, and surprising facts. A few of the volumes mention that certain elements actually predated the formation of the earth, and others warn of the dangers of abandoned mines. The chemical and geologic processes that form the resources and those that humanity uses to process them are well explained and illustrated, enabling readers to grasp fairly difficult concepts. Each volume concludes with a "You Decide" section, laying out concerns regarding the topic. VERDICT This series would be a great addition to school or public libraries, as it makes an often dull topic really shine.
