In the unbelievably vast universe, there is only one world that we call home, where the drama of life as we know it began. That world is Earth. Earth is just one small planet circling one middle-sized star in a corner of a single, unremarkable galaxy. It is an incredibly fascinating place, however, filled with marvels and miracles. Topics discussed include Earth’s origins, evolution, composition, waters, atmosphere, and magnetic field. Young readers will also learn about earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, global warming, the ozone layer, and the necessity of treating our fragile planet with care.
