Time For Kids: Volcanoes! (Science Scoops, Confident Reader)

Summary:

There are more than 1,500 active volcanoes on earth. Learn about the different types of volcanoes, how they form, and what happens when they erupt.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Amazing photography and lots of facts will engage kids in studying these mountains that explode.

Content Awareness Factors:

This is a pretty basic book. Although it is attractive to developing readers and they can (intellectually) process the content, you need to be a fairly strong independent reader to tackle this one.


Little Kid Reaction

We tried reading this book as partners, but it wasn't long before we needed to take over. Our daughter picked this book from the shelf, and was very interested (she asked lots of questions), but the insets and text-to-image ratio were beyond her.

Parent Reaction

The photography is exceptional, and the information about volcanoes is fascinating. The disparity among books with the same "confident reader" label is frustrating, though my daughter seemed to just go with the flow.
