In the Arizona desert stands a stunning rock formation called The Wave. How did the rock's colorful layers form? How were its wave-like, curves created? This book features a clear, accessible, step-by-step explanation of how sedimentary rock forms. It also explores how erosion by wind and water can shape rocks into amazing structures. 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 sedimentary rocks, this book makes learning about Earth's geology a lively, engaging experience.

How Do Water and Wind Change Rock?

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. How Do Water and Wind Change Rock? considers the creation of sediment and how it is transformed into sedimentary rock. Recommended as supplementary resources for larger collections.
