Overview

Pocket Genius: Earth by Dorling Kindersley Publishing Staff

A visual look at the planet we call home, Pocket Genius: Earth delves into Earth's geology and geography, examining oceans, mountains, deserts, clouds, and more. From sky-high mountains to deep, dark oceans and densely packed forests, Pocket Genius: Earth profiles more than 180 of Earth's features including volcanoes, rivers, and weather and answers questions like What causes an earthquake? Where is the world's largest glacier?, and Why is climate change happening?

Redesigned in paperback, DK's best-selling Pocket Genius series is now available in an engaging compact and economical format that is ideal for both browsing and quick reference for use in school and at home. Catalog entries packed with facts provide at-a-glance information, while locator icons offer immediately recognizable references to aid navigation and understanding, and fact files round off the book with fun facts such as record breakers and timelines. Each pocket-size encyclopedia is filled with facts on subjects ranging from animals to history, cars to dogs, and Earth to space and combines a child-friendly layout with engaging photography and bite-size chunks of text that will encourage and inform even the most reluctant readers.
