The internationally successful Ultimate Book series expands its scope to embrace--very appropriately--the whole world! The Ultimate Book of Planet Earth offers lots of opportunity for hands-on interaction using flaps, tabs, pop-ups, and more! Pull a tab to see how magma erupts from a volcano, turn a page for a giant pop-up of a mountain range, or rotate a wheel to move the blades of a wind turbine! This book explores not only the geology of the Earth--oceans, continents,and the formation of mountains and volcanoes--but also its geography, atmosphere, and weather. A valuable reference book for any child!
