Keep facts at your fingertips in this palm sized guide from DK Canada, Pocket Genius Earth.
The prefect sized books for backpacks and school desk, DK Canada’s Pocket Genius series is the ideal source for reference. Featuring essential information, full-color images, glossary, and top ten lists, this series of books are a brand-new type of encyclopedia for young readers.
A visual look at our planet, Pocket Genius Earth delves into Earth’s geology and geography, examining oceans, mountains, deserts, clouds, and more.
This palm sized book (literally palm sized!), has 150 pages full of images and information all about our home planet, Earth. It is divided into sections based on land, ocean, atmosphere and climate. It is further broken down in each of these sections such as lakes, volcanoes, tundra, grasslands, etc. The pictures in this small book are bright and stunning. You are guided across the pages visually and it feels as those this book is quite larger than the one you are holding. Some of my favourite images come from the Tundra and ocean section.
Both my son and I, learned a lot of new facts from this book, including that after a coral dies, its hard skeleton remains and a new corals grow on it. Neat right? This book is full of facts like this and we had a really great time reading each section. This book will fit perfectly into your child’s backpack and desk, ready to pull out during those geography classes.
