Welcome to the Explanatorium of the Earth - the only Earth encyclopedia you'll ever need, with excellent photographs of everything from supervolcanoes to tsunamis.

This Earth exploration book for kids aged 9-12 and beyond answers the biggest and smallest questions about our universe, whether it’s fossils, oceans, or geology. The Exploratorium of Earth brings science to life with striking photographic explanations, helping kids understand how the world works.

This fact-filled encyclopedia for kids offers:
  • An extensive earth science guide– explaining more than 100 scientific principles, including matter, reactions, materials, forces, energy, life, and Earth.
  • Detailed, close-up photography, plus incredible macro images, cross-sections, exploded views, time-lapse, x-ray, and ultra-violet photography.

What makes volcanoes erupt? Why are tornadoes and hurricanes so destructive? How do rocks, fossils, and gems form? Explanatorium of the Earth takes you on an incredible voyage deep into the heart of our planet and back to discover the powerful forces that continually shape and remodel our ever-changing world. Discover how tectonic plates tear apart and cause earthquakes. Learn how the slow but relentless process of erosion and weathering wears away rock, reducing mountains to dust and carving valleys and canyons into the land. And learn how the living world and rock cycles have worked together for millions of years to stabilize the planet's climate, keeping Earth suitable for life.
