From the First Book--Earth & Sky Science series, this volume introduces glaciers. Beginning with an explanation of the nature of glaciers, their formation, and movement, it also explores how glaciers in the past have changed the surface of the earth. The last chapters explain how scientists learn about the past from cores of glaciers and where glaciers can be found today. Throughout, excellent color photographs illustrate the text and provide beautiful views of glaciers. Appendixes include a glossary, a list of Web sites, and a bibliography, which, unfortunately, is limited to four books published by Children's Press and Watts, two divisions of Grolier. Clearly written and informative, this book will be a useful addition to many library collections
