Synopsis

In the Shadow of the Volcano by Caryn Jenner

New series from DK designed to help kids learn how to read and learn to love reading In the Shadow of the Volcano is a 'Reading Alone' reader, perfect for children who are proficient readers, developing the habit of reading widely for both pleasure and information. DK Reads proves that good reads build great readers. Volcanologist Rosa Carelli and her son Carlo are caught up in the dramatic events unfolding as Mount Vesuvius re-awakens. A bulge appears on the west side indicating that this sleeping giant is about to erupt with devastating consequences. Will the mayor heed Rosa's warning and the villagers escape in time? Plus, there's interactive elements such as a volcano evacuation plan, a timeline of Vesuvius eruptions, an eruption index, a volcano fact file and more. In the Shadow of the Volcano is part of the new DK Reads series, a three-level reading scheme that helps children become confident readers, featuring engaging and illustrated topics. DK Reads is created in consultation with literacy experts and adheres to levelled reading scheme guidelines so the grammar, vocabulary, and content are spot on for each stage.
