What Shapes the Land?

“...What Shapes the Land? incorporates a lot of the information from the other volumes in this series to explain how the land is built up and worn down by wind, water and volcanoes. Erosion and weathering are discussed in detail. Volcanoes, rivers, coasts, and glaciers are all part of this final volume in the series. A nice feature of this book is the What shapes the land? organizer on pages 8 and 9. Photos of a volcano, glacier, crashing waves, a river valley, and a desert are accompanied with page numbers which lead you to further information about each feature. Students who are uncertain what they are looking for, or where to find it, may find this visual table of contents helpful...” —CM Magazine, 04/11 “...This book�series�would be useful to any class studying physical geography. Because landforms are a common content area for elementary programs, these books can be used for motivation, illustration, or research at that level.” —National Science Teacher's Association, 02/09
