My wife Karen purchased this book to supplement our younger son Jeremy's study of science. It is divided into eight sections: Planet Earth, Earthquakes and Volcanoes, Climate, Weather, Plants and Animals, Shaping the Land, and Rivers and Oceans, followed by a section of Useful Information including a glossary, a list of world records, Internet links, and a useful index. Like all Usborne books, it is colorful, and while the pages are somewhat busy (in a recent meeting, I heard someone describe a website as being "as busy as an Usborne book"), it is not as busy as others that I've seen. There is not nearly as much emphasis on evolutionary theory as I expected. In fact, it said, "Coal is formed from trees and other plants that died thousands of years ago" instead of "millions of years ago." However, it does talk about "several ice ages", and there are a couple of pages warning about global warming.
