How hot is molten lava? How are volcanoes formed? What happened with the volcano in Pompeii? In Eye Wonder: Volcano discover the answers to these questions and more, and learn about the inner workings of one of Earth's most terrifying natural phenomenons. A precursor to DK's awarding-winning Eyewitness series, Eye Wonder was specially developed for children aged five plus, featuring astonishing photography exhibiting subjects within their natural setting, offering a whole new level of information through powerful images. Each title in the series now contains educational activities including true and false questions, quizzes, matching games, and mazes. Vocabulary is accessible to young readers, with the meanings of new, subject-related words clearly explained. The combination of visuals and informative, accurate text will hook even those children who usually avoid books.
