Synopsis: How did life begin? What makes the continents move? Are Birds really dinosaurs?

The answers to such questions can be discovered by reading the ancient messages left on the earth. Sara Stein, author of The Science Book and The Body Book, involves children, who are earth's newest inhabitants, in exploring beaches, mountains, woodlands, and swamps and unlocking the ancient secrets of the world. Scores of fascinating projects range from raising tadpoles and preserving snake skins and paw prints to making a plankton net, a plant press, and seaweed pudding. Hundreds of drawings and photographs are featured throughout. Selection of the Children's Book-of-the-Month Club. Winner of the New York Academy of Sciences Children's Science Book Award, First Prize. Suitable for ages 10-14. 73,000 copies in print.

From the Back Cover: There are about as many tomorrows as there have been yesterdays, about as many new kinds of life to come as there have been old kinds of life in the past. So far, you are the only kind of life on this earth that can think about that . . . -Sara Stein

AN ENTHRALLING JOURNEY THROUGH DEEP TIME, WHERE YOUNG READERS . . .

IMAGINE eating dinner at a Stone Age Farm, joining a herd of three-toed horses, climbing a mounting under the sea, sniffing air that's 5 billion years old, befriending a lovely lugworm.

EXPLORE messages from the past on local beaches, mountains, woodlands, and swamps.

PRESERVE seastars, snakeskins, dragonflies, and pawprints.

INTERPRET natural codes in songs birds sing, and games puppies play.

MAKE a plankton net, a view box, a plant press, stone tools, natural dyes, seaweed pudding, leather.

Hundreds of photographs and drawings throughout

Praise for THE SCIENCE BOOK
