Children's LiteratureHave you ever wondered what soil is made of? Or how it was created? Have you taken a really close look at rocks? This book encourages kids to observe, take notes, compare and carry out simple experiments that will help them answer these questions and others. Written by a former editor of children's science books and one who has academic degrees in biology, science and environmental journalism, the book is informative, accurate and engaging. Words defined in the glossary are highlighted in bold orange letters and throughout the text special symbols alert readers when it is time to read directions very carefully or to ask an adult for help. The "To Find Out More" page lists books, places to visit and the publisher's website which can be used to track down more information on soil. An excellent addition to classroom and school libraries and a book that parents and younger kids will have fun sharing. 2004, Compass Point Books, Ages 5 to 8.
