Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
Scientists study the world around us; volcanologists, scientists who study volcanoes, do so under extreme circumstances. Using vivid and often dramatic photographs, Rosenberg explains how these volcanologists battle toxic gases, intense heat, and rivers of lava to learn more about all types of volcanoes. Where do volcanoes exist? Just about everywhere! The map on page 17 shows some of the world's best-known volcanoes, but notably missing is Mount St. Helens, a volcano in Washington state that killed fifty-seven people when it erupted in 1980. In her map, Rosenberg also misses an opportunity to highlight the fact that volcanoes are present in the seas (West Mata Volcano, southwest of the Samoas) as well as on each continent (the Copahue Volcano in South America, and Mount Tongariro in Australia). Like a volcano, a couple of errors actively erupt: "A eruption" on page 24 should be "an eruption," and one out of the three websites listed for further information is no longer up and running. Despite these minor slips, as part of the "Landform Adventurers" series, this book presents educational material in a fun way that will appeal to both teachers and children. Reviewer: Bonita Herold
