Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Having experienced two earthquakes on the West Coast, it was interesting to read the factual explanation of what caused the ground to move. Heiligman imparts a lot of information in this "Scholastic Science Reader." Kids will see diagrams of the earth's make-up and understand that the surface is always in motion. The example of the cracked eggshell really helps one visualize the tectonic plates. Interspersed with the facts about cause are descriptions of significant quakes and safety steps. Young readers will also learn how scientists are working hard to understand this force of nature; that they are helping to build stronger buildings and develop more flexible materials; and through study, they will see if there are tell-tale signs that will let them predict earthquakes. In spite of the tremendous power of this natural phenomenon, not many quakes cause great damage or loss of life. The two I experienced caused no major damage and represent the more than 8,000 minor earthquakes that occur every day on our planet. Clear and interesting photographs and other illustrations fill every spread. New words are presented phonetically in the text and defined in the glossary. There is also an index and note to parents, plus a few suggested activities. A Level 2 book in the "Scholastic Science Readers." 2002, Scholastic,
