"Ssh, this volcano's sleeping... or is it? Something is stirring deep inside. A whisper hisses through the magma chamber. Steam spits out. Bubbles boil and pop. And suddenly... it's awake! This lively informational picture book chronicles what happens when a volcano erupts. From the stirring of hot magma deep inside, to the smelly gases that signal an eruption, to the big kaboom itself, readers go on a journey of discovery about volcanoes. A playful, spirited first-person narrative from a cheeky volcano's point of view is supported by easily digestible fact boxes that explain important volcanic facts and terms, from magma to ash clouds. It's a step-by-step guide to a thrilling natural phenomenon -- perfect for both classroom read-alouds and more involved lesson plans. The content is supported by expert-vetted backmatter that includes a diagram of a volcano, an explanation of volcanic phases, information about different types of volcanoes, and sources for further reading. It's the ideal pick for budding vulcanologists -- or any kids who love things that go kaboom."-- Provided by publisher.
