Series Made Simple
Bold backgrounds and large typeface are used effectively in this sophisticated series that introduces various landforms, including volcanoes, canyons, and waterfalls. Short sentences describe fairly complex scientific concepts such as plate tectonics, cave formation, and erosion. Accompanying photographs, diagrams, and captions add depth and interest. Each title begins with suggestions for parents or educators on reading the books with children and concludes with related activities. VERDICT Young researchers will find helpful information, and teachers can use these as strong components of a geography or geology unit.
