Explore the geographical wonders of Earth, from weather, to water to climates and ecosystems
Geography A Children's Encyclopedia is the ultimate children's guide to our planet. It covers the geological and environmental processes that (literally) shape our world, from ice ages to global warming, earthquakes to tsunamis. Children will be able to explore the wonders of the natural world, from the peak of Everest to the very bottom of the Mariana Trench, learning as they go.
Full of beautiful pictures bringing the natural world to life, Geography A Children's Encyclopedia shows the Earth at its most amazing, from volcanic eruptions to stunning crystal caves. Geological processes are described via colourful diagrams; the water cycle is fully explained, as is the structure of a rainforest canopy. Physical and political maps will bring school projects extra wow, and fact files describe each of the continents and countries in them, revealing everyday life around the globe.
Children will be able to carry the world wherever they go thanks to Geography A Children's Encyclopedia - from the deserts of Africa to the low countries of Europe, the lush forests of Brazil to the coral reefs of Indonesia and Australia, this is the book to expand horizons and create a fantastic grounding in the sciences of geography, geology and sociology.
5 stars Review by: Mr. B, 06 September 2013
'Packed full of information, and makes an excellent addition to a child''s library - providing a standard of knowledge, which would accompany a child from 7 or 8 years, and yet would still have its uses whilst studying for GCSE, as it provides simplified models, which would provide a basic understanding, upon which further texts could expand - the content is straightforward, yet leads an inquisitive mind to want to know more - and for those who are enthused by maps, like me, the ''Mapping the World'' and ''Country Factfile'' chapters adequately cover the basics.'
