Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
The information includes a detailed discussion of the makings of a volcano, the locations around the world most likely to experience a volcano and volcanoes in history. Other information, such as underwater volcanoes and volcanoes in space, provides information that will likely surprise and impress students (and possibly teachers too). Drawings by Jakeway and Donohoe provide helpful information about the creation, content, and results of volcanoes. Readers are able to travel from the outer crust to the burning core of the volcano. All pages include primary text and several sidebars, which make the book idea for students with different reading levels. This nonfiction book also includes a table of contents (with pictures, which will be particularly helpful for younger or less experienced readers), a glossary of unfamiliar terms, and a detailed index. These items will help students use the book as a research tool. An information-packed discussion of volcanoes that is sure to appeal to young readers. Reviewer: Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
