Travel to the center of the planet and back again, passing manmade structures (like sewers and subways) and natural formations (like caves and fossils) along the way. You could turn the pages one by one, but I'd recommend sprawling out on the floor, since this entire book unfolds in one long, continuous illustration of the layers beneath our feet. Fun for all aspiring geologists, archaeologists, engineers or explorers!

Wow! What a unique concept. This book might be difficult to navigate for little hands, because of the very large (very cool) fold out pages, but the illustrations are so realistic, there is tons of rich vocabulary, and it will be sure to captivate all budding scientists. While I think this book could be used for mature preschoolers and early elementary readers eager to devour all things science, it would also be a great use for classroom teachers.

WHAT A CRAZY AMAZING BOOK!! One direction of the concertina book structure tells the story of the history buried beneath the Earth's surface, the soils and minerals and caves and coal, and then when you get to the hot molten core, you turn the folded page, and learn about the animals and living things that are "beneath our feet". I LOVED this book. I went right out and bought a copy for my 5 year old nephew who is engineering inclined. The book structure is cool, and the information is spot-on. I noticed that the information about COAL was objectively presented, no good or bad comment on how we use coal to pollute our world. It's just that it's there, along with minerals and rocks and bones. Highly recommended book.
