Children's LiteratureDid you know in Azerbaijan, a country in Eastern Europe, patients are treated to oil baths that they believe cure illness? Did you know a blowout happens when oil is first struck? Blowouts happen when the pressure that oil and gas are under from below the ground is released. The releasing of pressure causes the oil and gas to shoot up to the surface. Seventy years ago blowouts were common, but today's technology helps stop blowouts before they occur. This book, part of the "Rocks, Minerals, and Resources" series, will engage young readers with many facts and great visuals. The topics covered include everything from drilling oil to alternatives to oil. The simple text reads easily. While, the information included offers fascinating facts on each topic. A glossary provides a resource for unfamiliar words. The book would be a perfect supplemental text for any fourth through seventh grade science curriculum. 2004, Crabtree Publishing Company, Ages 8 to 12.
