Emily's Review

This book is fantastic. Not only is it huge and full of full-color maps and graphics, but it is loaded with tons of information written in an engaging format! It discusses changes to the landmasses through the history of Earth, changes to life, and how scientists know and discovered these things. There is even a timeline in the back of the book (you guys know I love a timeline!) I love how you can see the changes to the Earth across time and even into the future. I would say this is aimed at a middle-grade/upper middle-grade audience, so it would be a perfect tie-in if you are studying the Build Your Library Prehistory or Darwin and Evolution unit studies. If you have a science lover, they are going to love this book!
