Who would have thought that word would become an important part of our vocabulary? Perhaps you think it is easier to use her nickname, E-15. Either way, this Icelandic volcano has certainly been in the news.

Many children are interested in volcanoes (and not just the kind you make with baking soda and vinegar).

We have some great new books that you can explore with your children. Volcanoes from the Pebble Plus Earth in Action series is a great introduction for the youngest reader in your family.

For a beginning independent reader, try Volcanoes! from the National Geographic Readers series.

Why Do Volcanoes Erupt? does a great job of answering that question, and it includes instructions for making your own erupting volcano.

Violent Volcanoes includes case studies of the eruptions of several volcanoes around the world.

Volcanoes from the Real World Math: Geography series includes opportunities for older children to make math connections while learning about volcanoes.

Be the first to check out these new books, and let us know what you thought was interesting about them.
