Book Review


Planet Earth is an educational, interactive book all about our planet. First, readers learn about the layers of the planet (crust, mantle, outer core, inner core) and tectonic plates. The forces that move tectonic plates create volcanoes, mountains, and trenches. Readers also learn about water and the changes that it can make on land structures, like making glaciers, rivers, and caves. Different types of land are discussed, such as deserts and coasts. The book then takes readers into the sky to discuss weather and storms. Fun facts and interesting trivia are scattered all along the way. One interesting fact about volcanoes is that two-thirds of them are actually underwater in Earth’s oceans. Another fact is that the inner core of the Earth is hotter than the surface of the sun, exceeding 10,800 degrees Fahrenheit.
