Look Inside: Volcano

DK. DK , $14.99 (18p) ISBN 978-0-7566-8227-9

Dramatic photographs, pop-ups, and flaps join with informative charts and sidebars to explore volcanic eruptions. Readers learn about different types of volcanoes, their features, and what causes them to erupt, while reading profiles of past eruptions. A dramatic pop-up depicts the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption in Iceland, and an “Emergency Survival Kit” page includes images of a hardhat, battery-powered radio, goggles, and a dust mask. Readers should be left with a good understanding of what makes volcanoes tick—and their destructive potential. Ages 7–14. (Sept.)
