Packed to the gills with far-out facts and fascinating information, the Where on Earth? series makes standard geography topics lively, fun, pacey and interesting. The Where on Earth? Book of Coastlines answers questions such as where does water destroy rocks? How can the ocean shape the land? And why do coastlines need forests? Along with many others. It looks at shores, gulfs, bays, banks, oceans, seas, erosion, biodiversity, and much, much more. Be prepared for tidal waves of information - geography has never been so exciting! If you've enjoyed learning all about coastlines, why not try reading up on earthquakes and volcanoes, rivers and rainforests, in other books in the series?
