5.0 out of 5 stars Visual Factfinder: Planet Earth 23 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on
This book was recommended by "The Well Trained Mind" as a second grade earth science textbook. It is the perfect "starter" volume to begin a study of the earth. Each topic has two pages, with a lot of illustrations and explanations, to whet the appetite, and encourage follow-up reading and study. Major topics include the land, water, weather, landscapes, and conservation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent supplemental classroom earth science book 25 Jun 2012
By John Scott - Published on
This is a nicely illustrated, colorful book on earth science including geology and an environmental section, that is an excellent supplemental book for earth science. The material parallels 8th grade public school curriculum, but is also suitable for any lower grades down to about 2nd grade.

It is very well-designed, beautiful graphics, clear and easy to follow. It has a generous on-topic glossary and is well-indexed. Besides details on earth science, the last several chapters, like 8th grade science curriculum, discusses pollution, environmental issues and conservation.

This would be a very helpful supplemental classroom science book for all students.
