Summary "It has taken billions of years for Earth to become the planet it is today. When Planet Earth Was New looks back to the very beginning, using a poetic approach grounded in scientific fact to give an overview of how the planet has changed over time: from hot lava to the formation of oceans to the evolution of living things in water and on land. The book also includes the relatively recent evolution of humans - who are just a tiny speck in the sweep of Earth's history. A striking design with full-spread, digitally enhanced watercolor art gives the book a rich, atmospheric feel."-- Provided by publisher.
