    As the author says in the preface to this book, a lot of earth science scientists focus primarily on one of the four branches of earth science and are not too concerned about the other three. A new thrust into the earth science field is earth systems science, and that's what this book is teaching. Earth systems science seeks to understand the changes of our planet and the potential consequences of the changes for life here on earth. It does this by looking at the planet as a whole, linking all four branches of earth science. Chapter one introduces readers to earth systems science, explaining the need to study the four branches together. The next three chapters look at the first of these - astronomy - at three levels: a study of the universe, our solar system, and the earth-moon system. Geology is studied in the next five chapters, covering minerals and rocks, geologic time and dating rocks, plate tectonics, volcanoes, and the earth's surface. Chapters 10-12 are the study of oceanography and water on earth - water everywhere, the world's oceans, and the dynamic oceans. The fourth branch is the one most people talk about: atmospheric science - the study of our atmosphere, weather, and climate. It covers earth's atmosphere, climate and climatic zones; atmospheric moisture, pressure, and winds; and weather and weather systems. The text is very complete, but it is not written with a Christian viewpoint - the "facts" given for how things formed or how old things are come from an evolutionary viewpoint. Black and white diagrams, illustrations, maps, and photos are used regularly throughout. Each chapter ends with a review test, and the book ends with a practice exam. Answers included. 377 pgs. ~ Zach

    Part of Master Books' Wonders of Creation series, this book is more historical in nature than the other titles, which focus more on science. For the first time ever in this series, they have written a book with information tailored to three age groups: 5th-6th grade, 7th-8th grade, and 9th-11th grades. Text geared for each age group is printed on a differently-colored background, with the most basic information (who, what, where, why and how) written to younger readers, and the most complex information (theories, controversies) geared for older readers. Eleven chapters discuss what archaeology is, and then look at archaeology investigations at a number of different ancient Middle Eastern sites, including Egypt, the land of the Hittites, Ur of the Chaldees, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Petra, the land of the Phoenicians, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Israel. An overview of the history of locations or cultures is provided in each chapter, along with exciting details on recent discoveries and narratives from the Bible that correlate with the history of a place or related ruler. Maps, full-color photos and notes from the author add further interest. Although the differently-colored blocks of text aren't too hard to get used to as an older reader, younger readers that have an interest in archaeology may browse other sections, and will certainly be interested in perusing the full-color photographs of sites and artifacts. A separate 36-page study guide includes vocabulary, short answer questions, and hands-on activities for each chapter. This is available as a free download at www.masterbooks.net. A wonderful supplement to any study of ancient history, and a great resource for Christian students interested in the field of archaeology. 96 pgs, hc. – Jess

    Put away those boring, old textbooks and show children that science has a purpose in every-day life. Even more than that, discover with your children how to be a part of real scientific research! Easy to use, this family guide book from the American Library Association, begins by showing you how to be a citizen scientist, including how to use science as a family activity. Once the foundation is laid, there is a directory of seven citizen science projects that are readily available. The first section provides links to a variety of online logic games and puzzles. Subsequent sections are Amphibians and Reptiles, Birds and Insects, Beaches, Wetlands and Waterways, Biodiversity for Beginners, Outer Space, Plants and Fungi, and Weather and Seasons. Within each section are listings of a wide range of ongoing science projects, including a summary of the project, website link, age range, time frame, region and fee (if any). While most projects are U.S. based, there are a few world-wide or Canadian projects listed. Projects primarily focus on observing and reporting exercises; however, many also include photo submission alongside the observing and reporting. This great resource would make a captivating summer Science supplement or a productive way to add nature studies to a textbook curriculum. All the while, your children appreciate and value the natural world around them. SC.176 pgs. ~ Deanne
