Review text

One of the latest in the Science Scoops series, this is a level 3 intended for confident readers. Organization is one of the stronger points. Information about volcanoes is presented in four short chapters. Chapter one introduces volcano vocabulary and basic facts, and includes a cross-sectional diagram. The second chapter profiles the work of volcanologists. Some of the world's more famous volcanoes and the Ring of Fire are the focus of chapter three. Finally, the fourth chapter looks at ways people have learned to live with volcanoes, harnessing their power for positive uses. Young readers will be especially fascinated by the list of quick factoids found at the back. While vocabulary is defined within the text, a "Words to Know" section recaps their meanings. Stunning photographs that are well-labeled will attract a wide audience. Unfortunately, there is no bibliography or list of resources for further reading-flaws that are common in this and other series produced by TIME. Both a good starting point for learning about volcanoes and an easy-reader resource for information. (Nonfiction. 7-9) (Kirkus Reviews)
