Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
Earthquakes occur in many places in the Americas so middle graders are interested in knowing more about them. This title provides two ways of obtaining that knowledge. Most of the book explains the different kinds of earthquakes, how they are measured, where they occur in the world, basic earthquake facts and introduces a famous seismologist, Beno Gutenberg. Other sections present a quiz, charts, a map, an experiment, a timeline, "eco notes" and earthquake myths. An index and glossary are also included. Throughout, are colored photos that are consistent in quality with all the other titles in the "Earth Science" series. By using a special book code number found on the reverse of the title page, access is gained to the latest in online technology about earthquakes. Incorporated, are web links related to pages in the book, video clips, audio segments to introduce each page, experiments and activities for specific pages in the text. Additional features are an online quiz and a matching vocabulary game. Since pupils of today are so in tune with technology, they should find this book a very helpful way to acquire facts and produce reports for science class. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
