Plate Tectonics: The Engine Inside the Earth (In Depth Science Book 3) by Judith Hubbard is an educational and informative book for young readers that gives them in depth details about Earth and its movements. Plate tectonics cause volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and many other natural calamities. The heat generated inside Earth also plays an important part in creating movements on the surface, and scientists feel this could also have caused the continental drift. Earth will not change much over time if a certain equilibrium is maintained.

The book is packed with information needed for students and the author puts it all down in a manner which makes it easy for them to read and understand. The illustrations are very helpful in understanding the concepts. It's an excellent book to keep in all libraries as it's good for reference. The self-quiz at the end of the book is helpful to know if readers have understood what they have read. There are additional activities which will encourage readers to learn more about the Earth and its movements.

The author handles the topic extensively, but the simple explanations and the quizzes make this book child-friendly as they can understand the topic easily and develop an interest in science. Reading this book will make readers eager to learn more about Earth and what happens inside it.
