'Earth & Sky' by Education.com is a workbook full of science and math practice sheets. There is a lot of information packed into a scant 112 pages.
The book is broken up into 4 sections and an answer key. The sections answer basic and some not so basic science questions, like why the sky and ocean are blue or why people blush. You'll learn how honey is made and how a pearl is formed. Potential and kinetic energy is covered as well as the six different forms of energy. Land forms are covered including the rock cycle and weathering. The final section before the answer key is about geography math. It's a bit different from the rest of the book, so it was initially confusing. You are given a series of questions that are based on tables, but the tables are near the back of the section.
The pages have colorful illustrations and a good layout. There are items to fill out on just about every page. The information is concise, but accessible. Every section has a certificate of achievement that can be filled out. It's clearly aimed at 3rd graders on the front cover, and I was pretty impressed with the broad level of information that is given in such a book.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Dover Publications and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
