Erupt! 100 Fun Facts About Volcanoes

Reviewed by:

Erupt! 100 fun Facts about Volcanoes is a recent non-fiction text from National Geographic Kids that is geared for fluent readers in Division One.  Edmonton author, Joan Marie Galat, has used good non-fiction text features (Table of Contents, short chapters with bold headings, excellent diagrams, captioned colour photographs, and an Index) to organize the information and make it accessible for young readers.  The text includes facts about the geology, dangers, and location of volcanoes, both past and present.  In addition to the explanations in readable running text, each page is sprinkled with circular “fact boxes”, plus an additional four-page spread of fifty “hot” facts that are easy to read and will add to the reader’s knowledge of volcanoes.  Although best suited for students in Grades 1-3, this text would also be useful for reluctant older readers or ELL students interested in science topics related to natural disasters.
