Why do volcanoes erupt? The melted or molten rock is called magma. Magma pushes its way through the cracks. After a volcano erupts everything is buried. Then life renews again. What life do you think renews again?

My favorite part was when the volcano erupts because I got to see real photographs of volcanoes erupting. The illustrations in this book are the best! The lava was red and yellow which made me think it was really hot. I thought the lava was fire. It looked beautiful and frightening at the same time. It was amazing to see! This book made me feel terrible about people burning under a big molten rock.

Yes, I recommend this book. It is an awesome book about volcanoes. People who want to know more about volcanoes can read this book. The book, Volcanoes, is an excellent resource book. It stated that volcanoes can be found on islands, in some states in the United States, and what happens after eruption.
