Educational and entertaining. Children 4 to 15 will love it. Good for adults too. L.A.
EXCELLENT TEACHING TOOL! Mar 16, 2006
I homeschool my 7 year old daughter. Before a recent family trip to the Big Island of Hawaii, I did a unit study on volcanoes. This book was filled with great, easy to understand information. By far, the best book I purchased for the unit study!
Great volcano book. Wonderful illustrations. Oct 24, 2000
I grabbed a whole bunch of volcano books from our local public library (because our little boy thinks volcanoes are "neat").
