Synopsis

Volcanoes by Schofield & Sims

This exciting poster features an opening description of volcanoes, volcanism and the effects of each, as well as a central labelled diagram of an erupting volcano. Further diagrams show the movement of tectonic plates, the location of active volcanoes across the world and major eruptions of the past 200 years. These are supported by stunning photographs, including images of a river of lava flowing from Mount Etna, a plaster cast of a Vesuvius victim from AD 79, a giant ash cloud from the 1980 eruption of Mount St Helens, and the Pohutu geyser in New Zealand. Information is given under the headings: active, dormant or extinct?; what causes an eruption?; types of eruption; volcanoes and plates; where volcanoes happen; mud and hot water; risk to life; magma and lava; shields and cones; volcanoes in Italy; Atlantis; other worlds.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
