Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanne Javid
What exactly is a volcano? How do volcanoes erupt? Find out in this informative Learning about the Earth paperback, part of the Scholastic "Blastoff! Readers" series. Designed as an addition to library collections for kindergarten to second graders, the guided readers are standards based and designed to increase background knowledge of science topics. The topics range across three reading levels. Readers will find this book at Level 3 which assists early fluent readers toward fluency through increased text and concepts. Basic concepts and vocabulary regarding volcanoes are presented through simple, large text and high quality photographs in vivid colors. An excellent resource for use in lessons, projects or research with young students. Reluctant readers and English as second language learners in higher grades may also find the book helpful as it is highly visual, appealing and well organized. A bibliography, glossary and index are included in each volume which concludes with instructions for learning more on the web. Readers are directed to factsurfer.com which links to pre-selected web sites on the topic. The websites regarding volcanoes number seven with one site no longer available. The information can vary in reading levels and navigation skills and it is likely help will be necessary for students to fully and safely explore the site. Reviewer: Suzanne Javid
Children's Literature
Did you know that most of the world's volcanoes are under the ocean? Or that lava can travel 120 miles per hour? These and other interesting facts are in this book, part of the "Science Matters" series. Do not let the book's size fool you. A wealth of information is presented in its mere twenty-four pages. Readers will learn what a volcano is, how it erupts, volcano myths, and more. The information is presented in clear, well-written, yet spare language, and is accompanied by colorful photographs and drawings. All the traditional elements of a good nonfiction book are here: table of contents, index, glossary, ("Words to Know") and where to look for further information, ("Surfing our Earth"), but this series goes a step beyond to include a "Science in Action" section—in this case, creating a volcano model—which gives students some hands-on opportunities to apply and expand what they have learned. It also includes a "What Have You Learned?" section which helps reinforce the information by asking readers ten simple questions on the material presented in the book. This book is a must have for elementary science students and their teachers, and would be a great addition to a home-schooling parent's library. 2005, Weigl Publishers Inc, Ages 8 to 12.
