comprehensive book about earthquakes and volcanoes
on February 18, 2008
The book covers the subject thoroughly, but often does not explain or define the scientific terms it uses. Instead, the reader must refer to the glossary at the back of the book, which disturbs the flow of the narrative. Since it is intended for children, I would have preferred that terms were defined in the text, as well as in a separate glossary. Otherwise, the book is well written, organized well and up-to-date.
