Horn Book Guide (Fall 2010)
This pop-up guide to earth and life sciences touches on topics such as our planet in space, plate tectonics, weather, the water and carbon cycles, and food chains. Although the busy format provides little depth (and includes some oversimplification), the movable features are quite clever (e.g., a flip book illustrating the formation of present-day continents) and the presentation will undoubtably draw readers in.
