  1. This book is, quite simply, a treasure! You can't get a better introduction to Earth sciences than this. It is told by way of the history of earth itself, starting with the Big Bang. It is beautifully designed, so that even a single pair of large pages offers a wealth of thought provoking information. Photographs, diagrams, history, text, are used in a consistent way for all of the many topics covered. The book has a detailed index, as well as in-chapter cross references. It also has something you almost never see--a to-scale...

  2. Incredible book with amazing photos! This is an incredibly beautiful book, and it is full of fascinating information about the world we live in. Though I bought this as a resource for homeschool, I have spent quite a bit of time just looking at it and enjoying it on my own. It's too advanced to teach from for second grade, but the pictures can speak to anyone if any age, and it will still be good in a few years for teaching. I highly recommend this book to anyone. You will not regret the purchase!

  3. Excellent reference! Yet another excellent reference from DK publishing and the Smithsonian Institute. I grew up with DK books covering various disciplines such as science and history as a child and I am quite certain that my children will now enjoy the full color illustrations and vast wealth of information these books provide.
