The Scholastic Science Readers series was created especially to bring exciting nonfiction to beginning readers. Each book combines easy-to-read text with outstanding photographs to give kids an introduction to their favorite topics. Nature comes alive within the covers of these full-color books. Special �Take a Look� boxes give kids a closer look at the natural world, the inside of a wolf's den, an X ray of a hand, or a close-up of a bat's fur. Each book includes an easy activity that a child can do for further exploration.
Scholastic Science Readers: Volcanoes offers a look at volcanoes of the past and present, how and why they erupt, and the scientists that study them. Dramatic photographs show everything from erupting volcanoes to seismograph readings.
