Synopsis

Flip the Flaps Planet Earth by Mike Goldsmith

Zoom up through the protective layers of the atmosphere from the surface to outer space, following the Earth as it makes its yearly journey around the Sun. Discover the inner workings of our planet, and why volcanoes erupt and the earth sometimes quakes. Find animals in the forests and in the sea, and wonder at the amazing variety of life on our planet.

Reviews

Horn BookThe approach is visually appealing. NSTA RecommendsThis is an informative book that will engage readers in a tactile way as they explore the text. . . . Some of the illustrations are labeled, providing additional nontextual information for readers. This book would be a nice inclusion in a classroom or school library because it builds on the natural curiosity of young children. . . . While the information is very general, it's appropriate for younger children who have questions such as What is it like deep underground? or What is at the bottom of the ocean?
