Canyons by Erik A. Hanson


Canyons by Erik A. Hanson

Canyons chronicles the origins, history, and structure of the world's most breathtaking gorges, from North America's spectacular Grand Canyon to western Australia's exciting Windjana Gorge, where the Leonard River snakes its way through an ancient barrier reef. This book also discusses tectonic activity, undersea canyons, liquid rock, and pinpoints recent scientific studies and modern-day ecological challenges. Full-color and black-and-white photographs and line drawings, a glossary, and listings of resources for further study amplify the text and engage readers in the topic.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!
