Publisher Comments:

Illus. in full color. "The drama of natural disasters provides prime material to entice young independent readers. In this volume, the account of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius describes village life 2,000 years ago, the eruption itself and its aftermath, and the excitement when the buried town is rediscovered centuries later. A lively and factual glimpse of a devastating moment in history, in an accessible, attractive package."--Publishers Weekly.

I highly recommend this book. It was very interesting. My six year old love it. He was a little afraid when it came to talking about people dying but was ok by the end of the book. But this book also allowed him to ask questions about volcanos. It gives a real good feel for the activity of a volcano and the risks people take by living my them. The only thing I wish is that they would have vocabulary lists in them so we could work on the words that are a little harder.
