Children's LiteratureReaders will be engaged with the lively and witty writing of this geology poetry book. The 22 poems describe a variety of geological natural wonders which include earthquakes, fault lines, glaciers, granite and sandstone rock. The poems go beyond typical rhyming poetry and include clever language that young readers can relate to, such as comparing Wyoming's sedimentary layers to that of cake. If the poetic language is beyond the reader's understanding, they can consult the endnotes which explain the geologic science behind each poem. This rare poetic genre makes a wonderful addition to any geology unit and will be enjoyed by students young and old. 2003, Greenwillow Books/Harper Collins Publishers, Ages 5 to 8.
