I thought this was a great informational text. I liked this book because of the writing and language of the information given. The information on volcanoes was provided in a clear and concise way. Readers left this book with a good understanding of what volcanoes were. I also liked this book because of the good pictures that went along with the text. I thought that the pictures enhanced the text and help demonstrate and clarify facts within the book. I think readers will also enjoy looking at the beautiful images of the volcanoes. The big message of this book is information about volcanoes. ( )

Volcanoes was a very informative text that gives great details, explanations, and facts about different volcanoes around the world. I really liked the illustrations of this book. When the author would talk about the different layer of the volcano there would be a picture next to the information with labels. This was super helpful, without it it would be very confusing to understand the information. I also really like the glossary that was in the back of the book. There were a lot of tuff vocabulary words like pyroclastic surge and plumes, having the glossary really made the text easy to read.
The big idea of this book was to inform readers about volcanoes, what causes them, their destruction, and where they are located in the world. ( )
