Written and illustrated by Robert E. Wells, What's Older Than A Giant Tortoise? will provide young readers ages 7 to 10 with concepts and examples to help them grasp the concept of epoch time and age in the lives of animals, plants, and planet Earth. Noting that some giant tortoises have lived for more than 150 years, Wells illustrates that a good many other things live to be far older still such as California's giant sequoia trees who grow to be 3,000 years old While Arizona's Barringer Crater was made about 49,000 years ago, and that the the dinosaur dominated the Earth more than 65 million years ago. Also available as a paperback (0807588326, $6.95) and enhanced with full color illustrations, What's Older Than A Giant Tortoise? is a unique and superbly presented "kid friendly" introduction that is enthusiastically recommended for both school and community library acquisition.
