A celebration of the beauty and majesty of planet Earth with more than 100 incredible stories and images.

From molten-hot rock and smoldering volcanoes to icy glaciers and bubbling springs, this stunning compendium unlocks the mysteries of our living, breathing planet Earth.

The latest title in the hugely popular Anthology series, An Anthology of Our Extraordinary Earth looks at our constantly changing planet, with breathtaking images and compelling narrative text. The book explores rushing waterfalls, magical dark caves, and weaving rivers in clear and lively prose that makes complex scientific ideas easy to understand for kids. Starting at the center of the Earth, the book examines each layer in forensic detail: from Earth’s metallic core, drilling through Earth’s tough crust until emerging out onto the planet’s surface, with its lush green rainforests, sparkling oceans, and snow-capped mountains, before sailing up into Earth’s airy atmosphere. The book also examines the effects of climate change and what we can do to save our planet. This fabulous book cannot fail to excite budding geologists, geographers, environmentalists, and all-around planet Earth enthusiasts everywhere. 

With foil on the cover, gilded edges, and a ribbon for keeping your place, this book makes an attractive gift for any child who is fascinated by our planet. With engaging information and absorbing images, this book is perfect for children to explore by themselves or for bedtime stories.
