Gareth Stevens Publishing, 2018, 32 pp., Hardcover. $26.60. www.garethstevens.com
Earth science is made up of so many topics: weather, landforms, and even natural disasters. It can take a lot of time to learn about the details of each. Infographics are the perfect way to cover a lot of these subject areas in less time, including why earthquakes happen, the water cycle, and how mountains form, as well as many other parts of the Earth science curriculum. Each chapter aims to involve readers in what they’re learning through succinct text and colorful, creative diagrams. In addition, “Try This” boxes suggest activities and questions through which readers can apply their knowledge. For ages 8 to 11.
