This book was perfect for my self-contained special education class. The students are 5th graders, but reading and comprehending at a much lower grade level (2nd-3rd.) Earthquakes, tsunamis, avalanches, the Ring of Fire, Earth's plates, etc. are all a part of the 5th grade curriculum. It was great to find a book at their reading level that covered so many required topics. The pictures assist with comprehension as well.
