Nature is a sculptor

weathering and erosion
"With wind and water, nature shapes our planet in amazing ways. Photos of geological marvels accompany lyrical verse in this exploration of the forces of weathering and erosion"--Provided by publisher.

Erosion and sediments

"The history of Earth can be explored through the sediments that cover its lands and the layers they've formed over time. How did they get there in the first place? The answer is erosion... Readers will learn about the processes of erosion and weathering, sedimentary rocks, and the rock cycle."--Provided by publisher.

Erosion and sinkholes

Introduces sinkholes and the different kinds of erosion, including river, rainfall, coastal, wind, and glacial.

Rising seas

Water floods through cities along coastlines and islands all around the world. And the rising water has already started pushing people from their homes. What on Earth is causing these rising seas? As Earth's climate is changing, raising temperatures are melting ice and increasing sea levels. Uncover the problems of climate change, explore the impact of rising sea levels, and dive into what we can do to help. Approachable text with engaging images brings this timely topic to life.

Get hands-on with erosion

The natural forces of our world are always at work on the planet we call home. Over millions of years, the forces of erosion have worked through wind, water, sand, and more to create the many features of Earth, from the worn-away banks of the smallest creek to the stunning landmark that is the Grand Canyon. This title will take readers on a journey through Earth's long history of erosion, using color illustrations and intriguing hands-on projects to show them just how interesting this geologic force really is.

Where is Niagara Falls?

People from all over the world come to explore Niagara: among them the daredevils determined to tumble down or walk across the falls on tightrope. Learn about the hare-brained stunts and how the falls were formed and how--one day--they will disappear.

Biogeology reshapes Earth!

Everything is connected on Earth, even if we can't see it right away. Biogeology is the study of the important and sometimes weird relationships between living things and the Earth itself. Young readers might know how beavers dam rivers to make ponds, but they probably don't know about the hungry bacteria that eat rocks to make sparkly minerals like pyrite.
