Time For Kids

by Time for Kids Editors with Jeremy Caplan

      What could possibly be cooler than volcanoes? Okay, maybe dinosaurs, but volcanoes run a close second, making this a great subject for a Time for Kids reader. At level three, this book contained some challenging reading for my first grader, but she was so fascinated by the presentation that she stuck with it. The photographs of erupting volcanoes were very dramatic and caught reader attention right away, and the text met the challenge of those dramatic photos well. "Kaboom! Flaming hot rocks spew from the peak" - the text is filled with spewing, bursting, and exploding. This would be a great book for the reluctant reader who loves facts but isn't quite as crazy about reading. The drama and excitement married with this text and photo collection just might get a kid hooked on reading!
