Synopsis: No one succeeds better than Roy A. Gallant in providing young readers with engaging explanations of sometimes difficult scientific concepts. In EarthWorks, this author described by School Library Journal as one of the deans of American science writers for children takes his readers through time in a marvelous exploration of planet Earth. From the sea of air to the ocean's depths, he eloquently speculates on the earth's beginnings, reflects on its evolution, and examines its current condition. Incorporating the latest scientific insights and discoveries, he details Earth's basic components and rich resources as well as the threats to its ultimate well-being. Full-color photographs and in-depth diagrams, detailed sidebars, glossary, further reading and website suggestions help shed light on a wide array of topics fascinating to would-be scientists of any age.

From Booklist: Reviewed with Roy Gallant's Water.

Gr. 4-8. An award-winning science writer tackles life's basic substances in these volumes in the new Earthworks series. Both books follow a similar format: an introductory chapter summarizes early theories about the formation of the substance; later chapters investigate physical composition and how the substance moves across the earth. Atmosphere looks at the causes of violent storms, awe-inspiring rainbows, sunsets, and the sky's deep blue color. Water examines our human dependency and the ingenious technology, such as desalination, that we employ to supply more fresh water. Both books close with a survey of current causes of pollution and the efforts made to curb further devastation and conserve resources. Gallant's prose is nearly conversational in its easy delivery, but his facts are always thorough and his ideas clearly explained. Best of all, he raises informed points that will help readers rethink their habits and realize the complexity of the issues: seemingly innocent bottled water, for example, represents an industry that generates enormous amounts of plastic and chemical waste. Crisp graphs, maps, and excellent color photos illustrate these fine volumes that teachers will want to use in lesson plans, not just as suggestions for student research. Gillian Engberg
