Beneath our feet extreme pressure and heat inside Earth's crust is constantly forming new, super-hard rock. Inside this book, readers will find a clear, accessible, step-by-step explanation of how igneous and sedimentary rocks can undergo incredible transformations to become a new type of rock called metamorphic rock. Readers will investigate the properties of metamorphic rocks and explore how these rocks have been used to create buildings and beautiful statues for centuries. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of an early elementary audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume gives readers a chance not only to learn, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. From stunning photographs to high-interest facts about metamorphic rocks, this book makes learning about Earth's geology a lively, engaging experience.

Baking and Crushing

The wide-format books in the Rock-ology series discuss facts related to geology. A typical double-page spread introduces a new topic in several short, large-print sentences supplemented by an info-circle carrying more information in smaller type. Separated on the page into individual sentences, the main text seems a bit disjointed even when the various parts are logically connected. The greater part of each spread is devoted to one or more captioned illustrations: photos, digital diagrams, and digital-collage pictures incorporating photographic elements. Though somewhat varied in quality, the colorful pictures are often effective. Each book includes a simple activity suitable for home or classroom use. Opening with the statue in the Lincoln Memorial, Baking and Crushing discusses the formation of metamorphic rocks as well as the quarrying of marble. Recommended as supplementary resources for larger collections.
