Full-color photos. "Some of nature's most spectacular phenomena get the 'Eyewitness' treatment, with the gorgeous graphics and outstanding design that characterize this series. The account starts with an overall perspective showing how volcanoes and earthquakes occur. Effects on humans and attempts to measure and predict these events are treated. This book will attract readers to an already popular topic, and will provide one of the most effective introductions available."School Library Journal.

Volcano & Earthquake based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book has a great visual layout. There are many colorful pictures and text boxes spread over each page. Each page looks different and the format creates the illusion that there is less reading required, so the students don't get intimidated or lost in the text. It is fairly comprehensive and covers a wide range of topics with moderate depth. I would recommend this book to reluctant readers, who need the visual stimulation to stay interested.
