Whether it's the earthquakes shaking southern California or hurricanes whipping up and down the East Coast, natural disasters demand our attention, whether we like it or not -- and for good reason. Within a single moment, they can change our lives, without much effort. But why do these strange phenomena occur? Can they be predicted? Young readers will be intrigued by Natural Disasters as they discover for themselves how likely Earth is to be hit by an asteroid, how earthquakes are detected, and how plagues are created. Written in a simple prose style coupled with stunning photographs, this series accomplishes its purpose of answering the multitude of questions that fill children's heads when they hear about natural disasters.For centuries, volcanoes have fascinated human beings. From the ancient practice of worshipping volcanoes to the modern-day tradition of making a papier-mache volcano for the science fair, people have expressed their fascination with volcanoes in a variety of ways. Young readers will learn how a volcano's eruption can actually provide new growth opportunities for plant life. They'll also learn the history of some of the world's most famous volcanic eruptions. Make no mistake: Volcanoes is boiling with information that young readers will be excitedly spouting for weeks
