Praise for Basher Science: Planet Earth

Booklist
Basher continues his series of science primers that are so entertaining, kids may read them for fun, beyond the classroom walls. . . .the authors blend a surprising wealth of facts into the chatty, humorous text, which is filled with analogies kids can relate to. A hot spot in the earth’s mantle, for example, is “like a huge, angry pimple on Earth’s face. . . . ” the highly approachable language, animated cast of characters, awe-inspiring facts, and conservation messages make this an appealing starting point for students seeking basic earth-science information.
 
Library Media Connection
This small book will surely find interest among both science and non-science students. The easy-to-read text and colorful Japanese-style cartoon graphics presents a fact-based and often personified description of the basic features of planet Earth. . . . Bulleted items at the bottom of each page provide scientific trivia, which may lead students to do more investigation and research. This is a fun and engaging introduction to the place we call home and will surely spark an interest in other titles by this author.
