Synopsis

Cracking Up The Story of Erosion by Jacqui Bailey

This series uses cartoon-style illustrations and humorous narrative text to make key topics in Science and Geography accessible and engaging. This approach encourages children to read about and understand complex ideas. The story follows what happens when a cliff is gradually eroded by the sea, wind, rain and ice. We find out how rocks from a cliff-face eventually become the grains of sand we find on the beach. This book also contains an experiment, useful websites and an index. Reviews for previous titles in the Science Works series: 'Making science accessible and fun for younger readers is no easy task, but the author/illustrator partnership of Bailey and Lilly makes a brilliant job of it...Bright appealing cartoon-style artwork and a continuous narrative text treat each topic in the form of a story...Highly recommended' Books for Keeps, 5 star review. 'Using a clear and engaging narrative format with well-conceived and lavishly produced illustrations, the Science Works series interweaves science knowledge into a story with humour and interest' Times Educational Supplement.

Reviews

I recommend ths book highly to elementary school librarians, teachers, and those parents interested in giving their students an early start in understanding a basic principle of science.
