    I have always been a fan of the Usborne books, and this one is no exception – you'll not be disappointed with the beautiful photography and the plethora of facts. This encyclopedia is completely focused on earth science and includes chapters on planet earth, earthquakes and volcanoes, climate, weather, plants and animals, shaping the land (soil/weathering/erosion), and rivers and oceans. Scattered throughout the book, along with the information provided, you will find recommended websites where you and your child can find out more. The pages will draw you in, no matter your age, as you learn about our planet Earth. ~ Donna

    From Eratosthenes to Wernher von Braun, this volume looks at the exploration of our planet. The high-interest vignettes and tales of discovery include references to God and faith, where applicable. I hadn't realized before reading this book that rocket scientist Wernher von Braun was also a committed Christian. I also understand a little better now why, despite the fact that Eratosthenes virtually proved the Earth was a sphere, people clung to the belief that the Earth was flat.

    Planet Earth is very unique, but why? Children will learn what makes our home planet, Earth, a very special place and why it is so different from the other planets in the solar system. Robert E. Wells takes readers on a journey through the universe as he explains atmosphere and climate of the planets and why you couldn't live on them. He then talks about Earth and its special features and things we can do to care for our planet. So if you're thinking about moving away from the Earth - remember the other planets aren't a good option. ~ Donna

    What do little kids and rocket scientists have in common? They carefully observe their world and wonder, "Why?" While the infamous 'why' word often drives us crazy as parents, this simple word forms the foundation of the scientific method.

    As a firm believer that young children are never too young to begin thinking scientifically, this book will whet your child's interest for science with over 65 safe, age appropriate activities. Beginning with a general exploration of our planet Earth, the activities are varied and will provide hands-on fun. Each activity has been carefully chosen to increase curiosity and give young children insights into the properties of water and air, weather, plants, change (Kitchen Chemistry), sound, and movement (Physics). For example: Children will create a rain cloud in a bag, ice-cream in a bag, gooblek, and even have the opportunity to watch worms at work! You will need to supply materials for the activities and the author has included a supply list at the beginning of the book. Supplies are items easily found locally and include: salt, sugar, cornstarch, flour, gelatin, borax, art paper, tempera and water color paint, markers, pipe cleaners, soda straws, wax paper, coffee filters, etc. Helpful directions are also provided for creating a 'mini-museum' to store science treasures and a nature notebook. This is a valuable (and inexpensive!) resource for parents and teachers who desire to give children a strong start in science. Colorfully illustrated. 141 glossy pages. pb. ~Deanne

    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

    How big is the Sahara? Which products are in greatest demand around the world? You just might need a good reference book to come up with the answers to these and many other questions.  First Earth Encyclopedia by DK has the same visual appeal as other DK products and is packed full of information and interesting facts for children from a secular perspective.  Every page is laid out in a scrapbooking style with photographs and accompanying text.  An extension question is printed at the bottom of each even-numbered page and the answer can be found at the bottom of the odd numbered pages (upside down).  “Turn and Learn” icons tell you where to look for additional information within the book, and ‘Hands on’ activities show you how you can try some things for yourself.  You will find these scattered through the color-coded pages of the book.  Children will find information on the world’s physical geography, our living world (ecosystems), human geography, and maps.  A reference section at the back of the book includes a map of the world, photos of unique locations on earth, a view of the earth at night, a quiz, glossary and more.  I’m always a fan of DK books even for non-reading, younger children. This hardcover, 136-page book is no exception. ~ Donna

    The EarthBall is a fascinating introduction to the planet we live on. It is a 16" inflatable globe that depicts the physical earth as recorded through aerial, space and satellite photography supplied by NASA. While there is something wonderful about holding a 16" replica of the planet earth (without any sort of man-made boundaries in evidence), the wonder of our world only increases when you turn out all the lights – for then the world's cities begin to glow, adding a whole new dimension to the planet. A 16-page guide-book comes with the globe and includes educational activities, games for the EarthBall, and facts about both the EarthBall and the real Earth.

    This book is composed of over 100 reproducible worksheets that cover various aspects of earth science. The exercises encourage students to identify different things using words from the provided word bank. Students do everything from labeling hemispheres and landforms to filling out charts describing clouds and weather patterns to identifying scientific equipment and units of measure. A few crossword puzzles and dot-to-dot activities are also included, but most of the worksheets just prompt students to use words to answer questions. The worksheets can be used as a general review or teachers can select exercises throughout the book to correlate with their studies. Almost every area of earth science that is covered at these grades is included somewhere in the worksheets, including weather, rocks and minerals, seasons, planets, volcanoes, and oceans. An answer key is included. ~ Rachel S.

    This beautifully illustrated DK book is divided into 5 main sections, all of which highlight different features of the Earth. Gorgeous pictures and illustrations present Planet Earth, Land, Ocean, Atmosphere, and Tectonic Earth in an eye-appealing format. An introductory section titled "Dynamic Earth" gives an overview of what you can expect in the book's content as it takes you through the interactions of the earth and the forces which are constantly at work.

    The first section, Planet Earth, talks about the earth as a whole and gives the history of the earth, the earth as it exists within the universe, the anatomy of the earth, and how the earth is changing over time. Land, Ocean, and Atmosphere are the earth's 3 main environments, and each includes introductory material, features found in each environment and how they are formed, and major features highlighted with pictures and additional information. Tectonic Earth offers profiles of the Earth's 7 major plates and population density and political boundary maps. Each section is scattered throughout with thematic panels which include photos, illustrations, notable people, information, data, and statistics.

    Probably my favorite parts of this book are the references for rocks, minerals, mountains, and volcanoes. Rock and mineral guides are found in the 'Anatomy of the Earth' section of the book. These guides show full-color pictures of rock and mineral specimens and give specific information about each of them. Mineral information includes composition, hardness, color, crystal system, and specific gravity while the information for each rock specimen includes the origin, color, and grain size. The location of featured mountains and volcanoes is shown on a small map along with the type, length, and activity and or last eruption, along with other pertinent information. This book isn't just gorgeous; it is a great reference tool as well.

    The information is presented from a secular perspective. You'll find information about the Big Bang Theory, global warming, and biodiversity along with a plethora of good earth science information. ~ Donna
