Reviews

Praise for Geology is a Piece of Cake: "A high-calorie introduction to rocks, minerals, geological processes, plate tectonics, fossils, the reason for seasons, and more. Coppens dishes up compact but flavorful slices of science framed as questions and answer . . . .The answers, often presented in full recipes, are as illuminating as they are delicious . . . [The] directions are clear (and note where adult help is required), the earth science information is solid, and the whole premise hangs together beautifully. A truly delicious, hands-on way to study science in action." —Kirkus Reviews ?"When textbooks fall short, head to the kitchen. That's the thinking behind this clever cooking-meets-science book . . . An unexpected (and tasty) entry point to better understanding multiple aspects of geology." —Publishers Weekly "With a profusion of color photos, combined with easy recipes, and delicious cakes depicting accurate science, Geology Is a Piece of Cake provides a fun, unique, effective, and memorable approach to thinking about rock formation, tectonic plate movement, weathering, fossils and more. Thoroughly 'kid friendly' in organization and presentation for children ages 7 to 9, Geology Is a Piece of Cake is especially recommended for family homeschool, elementary school, and community library picture book Science collections." —Midwest Book Review, The Science Shelf
