I use this book with my ESL students 2nd-8th grade. What really makes it interesting is that it is a true story! I've been there, seen the church (what's left of it) and met the people. The only thing not true is there is no hot dog stand. Excellent book and easy to read.

Format: Paperback
This historical fiction story relates to those who lead a hum-drum existence in meeting daily responsibilities. A dirt farmer in a small village in Mexico complains that nothing every happens in his life. Then, one eventful day, his ox-drawn plow buries itself so deep in the earth that smoke (the smoke of a volcano) begins to escape. Older students from Mexico will especially enjoy that cultural's influence in the story sequence (written like a simplified proverbial folktale) and illustations. If read aloud and read well, your students's laughter will tell you they understand the story.

"Hill of Fire" tells the true story of a Mexican farmer who encounters the beginnings of a volcano in his corn field. The vocabulary is very easy, and yet the author captures the mood of the sleepy village that was changed forever by El Monstruo. I recommend this book to teachers of grades K-3 and to children who are just moving away from picture books.

This easy-to-read book is lively and realistic, with a thread of humor running through it from start to finish. When I was about ten, my mother told me the story of the Paracutin volcano in Mexico, and the idea of it stuck in my mind ever after. Now here is a book that recounts her story as literature. It should capture the attention of all children who read it.

Format: Paperback
Reason for Reading: Ds read aloud to me for his reader.

This book never fails to stun kids, the first time they read/hear it. How can a volcano just grow like that? It seems utterly amazing. But this is based on a true story and the volcano really did appear in a farmer's cornfield and bury the village with lava and ash.Written in a simple, easy to understand narrative, from the point of view of the farmer's son Pablo. This is a truly unique story that is sure to please any child, even those who don't usually like non-fiction. The illustrations are ok. We weren't too pleased with the depiction of the erupting volcano as it wasn't realistic enough and my son kept asking what's that?, what's happening there? and it was just that the illustrations didn't show the *how* of it very well. A diagram at this point would have been appreciated. Fortunately, I was able to explain and illustrate with my hands to his satisfaction. Otherwise, a very entertaining book. The Volcano is called Paricutin and it, along with the abandoned village, may be visited today.

It's a normal day Pablo was in school. His father was working at field of corn.

I like the book because it has volcanoes in it and I like farmers and corn fields too.The book is good; it has a family and a volcano the pictures of the book are great. It is a really easy book .Thomas P. Lewis made the story real. I like the book because there are volcanoes. I think that the author wanted to tell that volcanoes are not always dangerous.

This book was always one of my favorites to read. For some reason, for a little while, it instilled in me this completely irrational fear that a volcano was going to form next to my house(I live in New Jersey lol). However, I was also scared that we were going to get randomly obliterated by an asteroid for a while. I was a bit of a worrier in my early years. The language in this book is very easy and appropriate for just about any age group. In fact, the sticker on the front of the copy shown reminds me about an animated version they showed on Reading Rainbow way back in the day. Great book, highly recommended.
