How do waterfalls form? When do landslides occur?
From Pangaea to plate tectonics, this title delivers clear answers to complicated questions about a vast array of Earth science topics.
Are mountains growing taller?
Some are. Mount Everest, for example, is the highest mountain in the world. And it is still growing about 1 inch (2.5 cm) every year.
In the well received conversational style that sets the Q & A series apart, the Bergers provide a wonderful introduction to Earth science.
Children will be eager to explore the changing earth they inhabit. They will learn how rocks are made, what makes a volcano erupt, and that mountains can not only grow taller, but shorter, too!
