El Ecuador (the Equator)

“The Earth is wearing a belt” is an age-old visual device teachers have used to explain the equator. In this volume, young readers will expand their comprehension of this important concept. With an understanding of the equator comes a grasping of the rotation of the Earth, climate, weather, and many other age-appropriate science concepts. Clean, accessible art on every spread—including diagrams, maps, and full-color photographs—help readers grasp these curriculum topics. That important main line of latitude we call the equator is made familiar through clean text and graphics in a way that every elementary reader is sure to understand!
