A Child's Geography: Explore His Earth
A Child's Geography: Exploring His Earth is about getting to know what's under our feet, over our heads and in the world around us-the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, the lithosphere-and then how to get around this world-maps, latitude and longitude. Do you know how many gallons of water float in a cloud over our head-how far it is to the center of the Earth-what causes magnificent auroras, God's love lights-how God used the Flood to puzzle our planet into different shifting plates? Well, hop on board to experience Adventures for the Inquisitive Child-and every excursion glorifies our breathtaking Creator!
A Child's Geography: Explore His Earth is, in some ways, really like exploring and scouting out various routes before a grand trip! While scouting and surveying the grand scheme of things, the sciences of His Earth, our appetite is whetted for the real march out, the countries of this
Earth. The anticipation builds as we learn about the workings and the ways of His Earth. Then, having gained our bearings in "Explore His Earth," future volumes of A Child's Geography will follow the same traditional path of our chronological study of history, trekking through the countries of our world today.
