There are lots of volcano books for kids, but I'd venture to say this is the best (especially for ages 9 to 12). The true danger of volcanoes has never been so palpable on the page. Wonderfully written, with awesome photography, and packed with information, I imagine this will inspire some future vulcanologists.
