Gr 4-7-Divided into clear, clean double-page topic treatments, this series title presents a broad, browsable introduction to its subject. Allaby describes the make-up and natural systems of our planet, on and under the land, in the atmosphere, and in the oceans. He explores the ozone layer and the greenhouse effect, plant life and food webs, ecosystems and biomes, migration and niches, the water cycle, nutrient cycles, soil life, and rivers. The final spread is devoted to the challenges of learning to live in harmony with the earth (interestingly illustrated through land recovery after the mining of china clay). The illustrations focus on Europe, Africa, and the Americas; there are no obvious examples from Australia. Scales of objects in some pictures, especially the cover illustration showing ecosystems, vary enormously, which might be confusing to some readers, but the objects themselves are clear and identifiable.-Kathleen Isaacs, Edmund Burke School, Washington,
