Do you know one of those kids who asks impossible questions about scientific processes and expects answers? Their intellectual curiosity is charming, but the questions can be challenging to answer. Now there’s a fun, entertaining book to answer some of those questions. Using pictures and language that children will understand and enjoy, author Catherine Morley combines her talents as a geologist, educator, and illustrator to describe how mountains form. Detailed illustrations with numerous rock layers, fossils, and even animals will thrill preschoolers, and the whimsical yet scientifically accurate descriptions about planet Earth will capture the imagination of budding elementary-age scientists. An illustrated glossary helps readers visualize terms such as lava and volcano, and the final page tells the stories of six well-known mountains.

About the Author: Catherine Morley lives with her family at the edge of a lake in Minnesota. As a child she hunted for agates around Lake Superior and took family trips to the Rocky Mountains, experiences that gave her a lifelong interest in the Earth’s physical structures. She has a BA in geology from Colgate University and a BS in elementary education from the University of Minnesota. While raising her children, she studied at the College of Visual Arts and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in the Twin Cities.
