    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 hadnt 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

    This 400-page paperback text from Usborne is a fantastic reference guide that provides an extensive overview of world geography. First, you get a general overview of planet Earth. Next, more detailed sections cover the geographical phenomena of earthquakes, volcanoes, oceans, weather, climate, and world ecosystems. The people and cultures of the world (North America, South America, Australasia and Oceania, Asia, Europe, and Africa) are then extensively discussed, followed by an Atlas of the World portion of the book comprised of various maps (60 total) of all seven continents. The text concludes with a Fact File section that provides a medley of information on topics including but not limited to geographers and scientists, world records, time zones, constellations, and types of government.

    To take advantage of the interactive component of this book, visit the hundreds of websites recommended throughout the text. These sites were chosen to provide further information about people and places of the world and are reviewed and updated on a regular basis to ensure subject appropriateness and working order. Although it is internet-linked, the Encyclopedia of World Geography is a complete book that can be used on its own. ~ Enh

    Look out your window and stare into space (literally!) with these decoration clings. These planets are made out of a static cling vinyl that will stick to any laminated or glossy surface, including dry erase boards, table tops, file cabinets, windows, and even your refrigerator! There is a cling for each of the planets and the moon (sorry, no sun), with each cling taken from real Hubble images. These clings would be a great visual aid as you are studying the planets in earth science or going through a unit study on the solar system. The clings are removable and reusable, so your children can even use them to practice putting the planets in order! The clings come on a 12" x 17" sheet you can store them on when youre ready to put them away. - elise
