Description

This book from the America at Work series introduces young children to the people, machines and environmental concerns involved in the resource-based industry of mining. In Mining, kids explore an underground mine, a surface coal mine and an oil drilling site. Combining fact and fiction with colorful illustrations, the story delivers an early lesson in appreciating and protecting our natural resources.
