Combines dozens of simple, non-intrusive activities with detailed illustrations and informative text to provide a friendly introduction to the hands-on study of rocks and the earth. Perfect for geology enthusiasts of al ages.
"The writing is informative, tidy, engaging, and greatly augmented by the copious illustrations. The projects (the likes of "Measuring Longshore Currents" and "Understanding Isostasy") are simple, meaningful, and excellent for undertaking with children. Perfect for families, the book is also entertaining and useful for adults without children who are interested in painlessly learning some new or brushing up on their old geological knowledge." – Mike Tribby, reviewer for Discover Nature series
