The New York Public Library Incredible Earth
Dinosaurs, volcanoes, meteors, earthquakes: many children might be surprised to learn that the subjects of some of their favorite recent movies have an important, and fascinating, basis in reality. Authors Ann-Jeanette Campbell and Ronald Rood offer a brief history of time and journey to the center of the Earth to explain the forces behind evolution, weather, and the formation of bodies of land and water. A pull-out 3-D globe accompanies the usual host of helpful pictures and drawings.
