Big Book of Earth & Sky

This months Moms of MasterBooks book was Big Book Of Earth & Sky. Below is my review about the book as well as further details about this months Facebook party. To read more reviews visit the NLPG Blog.

A moms review:
As the title suggests this book is BIG, it's 15 feet long!!!! And it is loaded with fabulous information about the Earth! Everything from the Earth's atmosphere to the Earth's core is covered in these 21 brightly colored panels. Each panel is 9 x 141/4. 

You can fold out the panels and use them on the floor or you can do what we did which is hang the panels on the wall...well the first 10 anyway which include all the information above the Earth's surface. Things like the Earth's atmosphere, greenhouse gases, clouds, mountains, volcanoes, precipitation. water cycles, caves and more are covered. 

The bottom panels (which start at your baseboard and continue on the floor) take your family on a journey below the Earth's surface. Things like caves, ocean zones, oil, dirt, rocks and more are covered. For these panels you will start at the Intertidal Zone (0 ft the surface) and continue your journey below the Earth all the way to the Hadalpelagic Zone (35,813 ft deep ocean trenches).

Many questions like, "Where do you find the ozone layer?, Where does lava come from?" as well as many others will be answered in this book.

We really enjoyed using this book for our science studies. We recently learned all about weather and sea mammals and took a field trip to Ruby Falls which is a cave in TN, so this book was a great way to reinforce what we had learned about over the last few months. Volcanoes is the next topic on my son's list so I know we will be using this book next month.

There is a great teachers guide available for this book which you can either purchase from the NLP website or download for FREE.

This book is great for children of all ages (my 5 and 7 yr old loved it) and adults too. The publisher's recommended ages are 7-12.

More about the book:
Let your child take an exciting, visual journey from Earth's core to the edge of the outer atmosphere!

  • Explore the elements that make up the soil, the sea, and the sky.
  • Examine detailed charts and graphs about the earth's crust, caves, and clouds.
  • Scan facts and figures on weather, mountains, and more, based on the best-selling Wonders of Creation series!

Designed by the creative team that developed the innovative and award-winning Big Book of History, the Big Book of Earth and Sky unfolds as a 15-foot chart. It is removable so it can be viewed either panel-by-panel or hung on the wall as a full-length display.

This casebound volume provides ease of storage for the chart, which is excellent for families, schools, and churches. A teacher's guide helps bring out additional insights with questions, education activities, and additional readings, all of which enhance this excellent reference tool and help a parent or teacher utilize it within their science curriculum. This stunning chart will pique the interest of children and bring a study of God's world to brilliant life!
