Volcanoes for Kids: Educational Science Book for Learning About Volcanoes is an elementary primer on volcanoes. Author Samuel John says volcanoes would not necessarily be an exciting topic if there was nothing but text to read. That’s why this book is richly illustrated in full color. The author appears to have illustrated the book himself. According to John, the book is not written for any specific age group. It’s for children of any age who love volcanoes and/or want to learn about them. There is no deep, difficult-to-understand information; the book only contains the basic facts about volcanoes, written in easy-to-understand language, starting with basic facts and working up to more complex ones. Adults can also learn from the book.
I enjoyed reading Volcanoes for Kids by Samuel John. More importantly, I learned something about the fascinating topic of volcanoes. Children who are old enough to read will also like and benefit from the book. Those who are too young to read will enjoy having the book read to them and will be fascinated by the rich illustrations, which fit the text perfectly and help readers understand volcanoes. They will also begin what may be a lifelong interest in the topic. I wish this book had been available when my children were young; both they and I would have been intrigued and no doubt would have read the book together numerous times. I highly recommend this fine book to parents, grandparents, and children.
