Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
For the youngest readers, the “Discover More” series for early readers offers a new and exciting way to learn, including digital downloads of quizzes and activities. This edition of the series presents fascinating facts and pictures of volcanoes. Featured in this exciting book are colorful and spectacular photographs, labeled descriptions of tectonic plates, and descriptions of the movement of heat and pressure within a volcano. Seeing the eruptions and streams of spewing lava, readers will be able to imagine how fast the lava can swallow the land, people and animals in its paths. Those who study volcanoes, volcanologists, have a dangerous job trying to chart the movement of the lava and how it may affect those in its way. In our country, Mount St. Helens in Washington is the most explosive volcanic area. How can people remain safe from the effects of volcanic eruptions? The book shows pictures of bodies burned to ashes in Pompeii, an ancient city destroyed entirely by a volcano. Today, volcanologists work to learn more about how to warn people of any potentially dangerous volcanoes, and what to do to escape from lava, and heat and air pollution moving toward them. Readers will learn that ashes and gases can spread around the world and cause unusual weather effects for huge areas. Reading this book can introduce readers to important information about volcanoes. Reviewer: Enid Portnoy; Ages 6 to 9.
