Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of the "Exploring Science series" from Compass Point Books, this title takes on the format of expository text. It contains conventional elements of nonfiction text, such as a table of contents, graphs, an index, and a glossary, but also adds a wide variety of pictures to illustrate concepts. It also takes a novel approach to captioning by entering the caption at the bottom of each page, not necessarily at the bottom of the photograph. The publisher indicates this is intentional to help students see a consistent place for captions within the text, as well as to make connections between text and pictures. Not only are the internal photographs noteworthy and appealing, but the cover illustration is designed to draw in the student and to exemplify what they will find inside. The combination of a thorough index and the use of headings also makes this a good research tool in which the student can target particular areas of erosion they wish to explore without searching the entire text. Its organization is logical, which also aids in the use of the book as a research tool. 2005, Compass Point Books, Ages 10 to 12.
