1.I would recommend this book to lower to middle elementary school.
2.This book goes through a narrative about how earth is and a little bit of the history of it. It also has so many facts sprinkled into the book.
3.I definitely recommend this book and will have it in my classroom. ( )

Stacy McAnulty and David Litchfield pair again for another great book. In this light-hearted but informational text, the story of earth is told. Humor is injected when mentioning Pluto as the favorite pet instead of a sibling like the planets. Proper terms could be included such as revolve, revolution, rotate, etc. Instead the text reads, " My favorite thing to do are spinning--it takes me a whole day to go around once--and circling the sun. That takes me an entire year." Using these terms would have improved the text, while still keeping it simple. Children benefit from learning the correct names of natural phenomena. To contrast this, the text later mentions Pangea, Ur and Nuna--not as common of terms! A timeline is included along with mention of humankind's effect on earth. The book concludes with a two-page spread that includes more information about various topics mentioned. McAnulty does mention her goal was to bring an "accurate, brief (and entertaining) history of planet Earth. She accomplishes this. ( )

Here's a fun little introduction to earth science and history, narrated by Earth itself! Seems to me like it's at a nice and introductory level, with simplified concepts that don't devolve into distracting metaphors (except Pluto as the family dog). I do think a little more could have been said about the layers of the earth--there's a labeled picture, but no explanation of what each layer is, unlike in the rest of the book. And while I do applaud McAnulty's two-page-spread effort to acknowledge that people are hurting Earth in some ways, the following, final spread is an abrupt tone switch just to end on a high note. Might have been cool to see pictures of how humans can help fix Earth, instead of just enjoying it.

A little uneven info distribution and tone switching don't detract from how useful an introduction this is to where our planet comes from. ( )

Earth! My First 4.54 Billion Years covers the timeline of Earth’s history over the span of 4.54 billion years. This book is an amazing, and inclusive book that covers a variety of science contents that correlate to the Earth’s history. This book goes through topics that cover, the solar system and planets, the milky way, rotation and revolution of the Earth, the moon’s revolution, formation of continents such as Pangea, location of seven continents, timeline of life, and even pollution. Additionally, the book provides more in-depth topics with background information to help the reader understand topics mentioned within the book. Although this book is directed towards elementary school students, it can be used as a reference to serve as a refresher for the history of the Earth and Earth science topics. This book can also have a correlation towards geography as to where the continents are located. I would mainly use this book as an aid for students that are struggling with understanding a Earth science concept. ( )

This book is all about the earth and its history from how it was a hot ball to the beautiful earth it is today. While this is a charming book, I will not read it in my class since I do not believe the earth is this old due to my faith. I would say this book is great for primary readers.
