Description

Earth Shattering Events is an eye-catching and brightly illustrated hardback nonfiction book for children aged 7-12. A multi-layered book to be explored again and again, with extra material including a glossary of terms, a timeline of key thinkers, and an index of themes . This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show signs of wear and previous use. The what to do if you are caught in an avalanche page, how to survive a blizzard and how to spot an impending tsunami will all draw in the young reader.

Today we talk to Sophie Williams and Robin Jacobs about volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, and how they worked together to create their brand-new, engaging geography book EARTH-SHATTERING EVENTS, which manages to be accessible, fun and informative! If you like this book you might also like Natural Disasters through Infographics (Super Science Infographics) by Rebecca Rowell, Natural Disasters: Investigate Earth’s Most Destructive Forces with 25 Projects (Build It Yourself) by Kathleen M Reilly and Tom Casteel, The Great Fire of London: Anniversary Edition of the Great Fire of 1666 by Emma Adams and James Weston Lewis, Alastair Humphreys’ Great Adventurers by Alastair Humphreys and Kevin Ward Incredible Journeys: Discovery, Adventure, Danger, Endurance by Levison Wood and Sam Brewster. With provocative insight, Walls charts the centuries-long uneasy tension between the walled and unwalled, showing that walls profoundly shape the human psyche. I had a really good advisor alongside to help me out, and then it was a matter of making sure the facts were there in their clearest and simplest form.

BookTrust An atlas of the most extreme meteorological and geological disasters that nature has to offer! If the idea of giving a child a book on disasters feels in some way wrong, it’s also filled with some very useful information, written with humour by Jacobs. is one of those books that perfectly balances both the needs of the child, and the wants of the adult; it’s fun, educational and equally entertaining to people big and small''.

It took quite a lot of back and forth between us to get things right, especially in the early stages as the book was beginning to take shape. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Today, seismologists can monitor the vibration of the planet second by second and the movement of tectonic plates millimetre by millimetre. Each section tackles a different type of event, and mixes the science behind the event with pages devoted to maps and diagrams, as well as insets that cover related factoids.

The information is laid out in a fun and easy to understand way, making this heavy subject matter accessible for all ages!
