Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What Are Mountains? is a book for beginning readers. Mountains are landforms that are taller than the land around them. Foothills are the smaller mountains leading up to large mountains. The summit is the top of a mountain, and tall mountains have snow on their summits. Some summits are pointed, others are rounded. Mt. McKinley in Alaska is the tallest mountain in North America. Some mountains are volcanoes. Beautiful photographs illustrate the simple sentences of the book. A map of North America shows where Mt McKinley is located. This book is part of the "Earth Features" series published to support the national science standards for information about landforms on Earth. Maps are used to support the geography standards. A glossary provides definitions for all subject-specific vocabulary. Internet links identify sites such as one with world records in Earth Science and images of the Canadian Rockies. A PBS site about Denali has interesting illustrations and instructions on how to build a snow cave. 2003, Pebble Books, Ages 3 to 8.
