|Erosion: Changing Earth's Surface (Amazing Science)|
by Robin Koontz (Author), Matthew Harrad (Illustrator)
Did you know that rain, waves, wind, snow, and ice can change the shape of Earth’s surface? They can create valleys, sea stacks, caves, and rock arches. Learn about the natural forces of erosion and how they shape the land.
|How Do Wind and Water Change Earth? (Earth's Processes Close-up)|
by Natalie Hyde (Author)
This fascinating book explains how the shape of Earth is changed by weathering and erosionthe breaking down of rocks and minerals which are then carried from one place to another by water, ice, wind, and gravity. It is this movement that carves out valleys, causes trees to topple over, and creates or destroys good farmland. Examples of changes to landforms help show young readers the effects of weathering and erosion, which can happen quickly or sometimes take centuries!
|Cracking Up: A Story About Erosion (Science Works)|
by Jacqui Bailey (Author), Matthew Lilly (Illustrator)
Describes the process of erosion and how water, ice, wind, and sun wear away at Earth's surface.
|Earth's Landforms and Bodies of Water (Earth's Processes Close-Up)|

|Erosion and Weathering (Rocks: The Hard Facts)|
by Willa Dee (Author)
Discusses the different causes of erosion and weathering, how these phenomena create problems for people, and their role in the rock cycle.
|Introducing Landforms (Looking at Earth)|
by Bobbie Kalman (Author), Kelley Macaulay (Author)
Looks at such different types of landforms as coasts, rivers, lakes, islands, mountains, hills, valleys, plains, canyons, and caves.
|Weathering and Erosion: Wearing Down Rocks (Rock It!)|
by Steven M. Hoffman (Author)
Tree roots splitting a rock apart is an example of weathering, while a glacier pulling rocks along in its path is erosion. This informative book offers many examples of these two processes and outlines the key role they play in the rock cycle.
|What Shapes the Land? (Looking at Earth (Paperback))|
by Bobbie Kalman (Author)
In this fascinating book by Bobbie Kalman, children will learn about how mountains and islands form from volcanoes, how wind and rivers create canyons, how rivers and streams create underground caves, and how ocean waves shape coasts.
|Volcanoes! (National Geographic Readers)|
by Anne Schreiber (Author)
The cool story of volcanoes will intrigue kids and adults alike. Hot melted rock from the middle of our planet forces its way up through cracks in the Earth’s crusts, exploding violently and sometimes unexpectedly in volcanic fury that can terrorize populations for months, even years. Anne Schreiber’s narrative gives readers a little of the science, a little of the history, and a lot of the action. National Geographic photography fires the imagination on dramatic spreads alive with vivid...
