Description - Earthly Treasure by Kate Petty

A fascinating and interactive guide to the Earth's treasures, with superb illustrations and pop-up wizardry. Children (and adults) are always amazed to discover just how many of the things we use have been taken from the ground beneath our feet, from the building materials of our homes, to the fuels that we burn for energy as well as the chalk, talc and salt that we use every day -- and all this before we even go into the minerals from the soil that appear in our vegetables and keep us healthy. Last but not least are the fabulous gems and precious metals that make beautiful jewellery. Discover how minerals were formed, lift the flaps to find out what all sorts of everyday things are made of and open a treasure chest to reveal a spectacular pop-up of glittering gems!
