One of the books from the DK Readers beginning reader series, this one about volcanoes, and written at a level where children are beginning to read alone but still need a little assistance. The sentences are simple and yet the voice is engaging, with plenty of content words introduced and explained clearly. The text begins with explanations of volcanoes, and scientific information is given in easy doses that young children can understand, then proceeds to examine different types of volcanoes and what rolls they have played in history, ending with contemporary views of volcanoes and the scientists who study them.As with most books they produce, DK has done another stellar job of creating a rounded and complete book. The author does her part in creating text that is easy to read and interesting, but that text is complemented with great photographic illustrations, relevant scientific information in side bars, and bits of trivia at the end. This book is vastly different from the old school beginning reader, where so much focus was on using language that was easy to read that the writers and publishers forgot to make it appealing to children. This is a great book from a great series aimed at teaching children how to read.
