Volcanoes (Let's-Read-And-Find-Out Science: Stage 2)by Franklyn Mansfield Branley
Synopses & Reviews
Volcanoes are one of nature's great wonders. For years, they can stand dormant, but once active, they can erupt in tremendous explosions of power. Marc Simont's fascinating illustrations and colorful maps denoting volcano locations around the world are beautifully paired with Franklyn Branley's clear, simple text.
This is a Stage 1 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explains simple science concepts for preschoolers and kindergarteners. Let's-Read-And-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.
Supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards
When Mount Vesuvius blew up in A.D. 79, ash, cinders, and stones buried a great city below the mountain.
Volcanoes are dramatic and powerful. There are thousands of them all over the earth. Franklyn M. Branley's clear text and Megan Lloyd's striking illustrations explore the fascinating subject of volcanoes—how they form and erupt, where they are found, and when you can expect a volcano to blow its top.
