This book is perfect for anyone from age 7 up. It is full of fun facts that will surprise and entertain. It is great for parents or grandparents to share with children, and for teachers to use in the classroom. What a wonderful source for "did you know?"

I absolutely loved this book!

It's been awhile since I found myself totally engrossed within the pages of a non-fiction book, but authors Steve & Matthew Murrie managed to keep my attention from the first page to the last with EVERY MINUTE ON EARTH. More importantly, the authors deliver exactly what the title promises -- totally fun facts about things that happen on Earth every sixty seconds.

The book is broken down into eight main categories: Earth, Space, The Human Body, Technology, Animals, Food, Pop Culture, and Sports. Each category is also followed by activities that you can do yourself (or with friends!) that are fun, easy, and awesome!

So, what exactly does happen on Earth every sixty seconds? Here are just a few examples:

2,000 thunderstorms occur.
45 million gallons of water go over Niagra Falls.
2,271 working satellites orbit Earth.
A hair grows 0.00027 inch.
954 camera phones are sold.
15,000 gallons of air are inhaled by a blue whale.
21,000 pizzas are baked.
180 Barbies are sold.
115 soccer balls are made -- and 61 of them are in Pakistan.

Totally cool, right? And these are just a few of the amazing facts you'll find in this book! Believe me, everyone needs a copy of EVERY MINUTE ON EARTH in their personal library. Just think, you can learn something new every minute (and maybe find yourself added to the next addition of this great read!).

This fun and factual non-fiction piece talks about the many interesting things that happen every minute on Earth. All of the facts are sorted into categories such as: Earth, Technology, Food, and Animals. The language is easy to read, the facts are fun and interesting, and there are even activities to do at the end of each section. Each fact is on one page and has its own illustration and explanation. This book would be a fun edition to have in a classroom library. It could be useful for research or projects or just for fun! This book can be used by those of all ages but is easily do-able even in the primary grades.
