Review:
Less an encyclopedia and more a “textual movie” of Planet Earth’s physical geography, this reference guide strikes the right balance of information for the age group: excellent illustrations and photographs, exciting layouts and low use of jargon. Clear explanations of scientific concepts and a thorough almanac-style appendices (including information about careers in earth science and useful web sites) spark intellect and imagination. The text also presents a balanced view of environmental issues such as global warming.
