Our most popular product, the children’s books on Fossils, Geologic Time and the Periods of the Timeline of Life have all been rewritten! Geologic info is constantly changing, so we’ve updated the books to include some of the most recent discoveries and terminology.

Speaking of terminology...another new feature is a glossary in EVERY book! To help parents and teachers support kids with not only geologic terms, but also developing vocabularies, we’ve highlighted 8 to 12 terms and included them in a glossary at the end of each book. Every entry includes the part of speech, definition and reference to the page number so students can easily find their way back to where they were reading.

Coming soon...teacher’s guide for using these books to integrate earth science into language, math, science and history lessons!
