Summary
Rocks, fossils, earthquakes. Seventeen short syllables? Earth Science haiku! In a stunning combination of haiku and impressionistic (but accurate) art, this one-of-a-kind book encourages readers to think playfully about our planet and its wondrous processes. Sibert Medalwinning author Sally M. Walker covers Earths many marvels fossilized skeletons of plants and animals, terrific volcanic eruptions, the never-ending hydrologic cycle in sometimes straightforward, sometimes metaphoric three-line haikus. Expertly drawn art by William Grill, author-illustrator of Shackletons Journey, provides a visual reference for each poem. In clear and creative back matter, Walker and Grill further use their skills to provide additional detailed explanations for the science behind each concept. A unique, artistic intersection of poetry and science, Earth Verse is sure to enthrall any and all readers interested in the world around them
