Children's LiteratureDid you know that there is such a large supply of salt in the oceans and buried underground that it will probably never run out? On the other hand, animals need salt to stay healthy. Humans use solar salt, also called sea salt, in our cooking. Humans also use over half the salt produced on our icy roads. 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 salt mining to solar salt. The simple text reads easily. A great diagram on the water cycle will entice visual learners. While, the text 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.
