Remember The Sun? Well Earth is by the same author and is from the same series. In it we are treated to a basic understanding of our planet – its distance from the sun, the path of its orbit, its atmosphere, and unique topography. I especially appreciated the simple-but-thorough explanation of the tilt of the Earth’s axis and how it causes the four seasons.

My only complaint is that the photographs – which could have been simply stunning – were printed in black and white, which made for a harsher, less appealing look.

Conclusion. Fine.
