Calliope Magazine—“Geology of the Eastern Coast, by Cynthia Light Brown and Kathleen Brown, is another in the excellent and engaging ‘Build It Yourself’ series. Complementing the information-filled text, sidebars, and charts are such nifty projects as make your own lighthouse, make your own hurricane, create folded mountains, and discover the effects of an oil spill.”
National Science Teachers Association (NSTA.org)—“In this large–size paperback, readers will investigate the geology of the eastern coast of the United States. Packed with information covering topics such as plate tectonics, mountain ranges, earthquakes, climate, plains, rivers, and ecosystems, this book teaches students so much about geology, physical geography, and how the earth was formed.” Read the complete review online.
Charlotte's Library—“. . . another fine addition to Nomad Press' Build It Yourself series. It is really the best geology book for 8-10 year old kids I've read (I learned things too!), and the focus on one region gives it a more personal interest than books that cover the whole world.” Read the complete review here.
Marla Conn, Educational Consultant, Readwithmenow.com—“A wonderful addition to the science/social studies curriculums. It guides learners to find answers to past and present geographic questions related to regions of the Eastern Coast of the United States. Students are given many opportunities to organize and analyze information using geographic tools to draw conclusions about national environmental change.”
