I’m a Volcano!

Science Buddies

Written by Bridget Heos, Illustrated by Mike Ciccotello

I thought that this book blended fun with educational content in a great way. The book has amazing pictures that are both cute (thanks to the use of faces on the tectonic plates and various volcanoes), colorful, and dynamic. But the information on the page is really very good. It takes topics–like the formation of volcanoes–and simplifies them into easily digestible pieces that kids could grasp. It is still rigorous enough, however, to allow for great discussion and extra research/investigation by the student. Overall, I think it is a great addition to an easy level nonfiction section.
