Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
For kids who enjoy a bit of hands-on learning, this kit may be a help. The small size but information packed book tells plenty about the development of the earth's oceans and the life that teemed in them. Charts, timelines and black and white illustrations break up the text that is written in a conversational style. (Too bad the editors didn't catch all of the misspellings such as the two on page 45-beaeches and probaly.) After getting up to speed on a few million years of ocean history and learning that fossils are a major source of that information, kids can try digging up a fossil of their own. The kit contains a lump of clay with shark's teeth embedded and a set of tools and instructions for undertaking the excavation. Once unveiled kids can compare their find to those in the book to identify the correct shark.
