Playful, kid-friendly poems from five alternating points of view explore the volcanic process and its effect on the surrounding land, flora, and fauna. From the lava crickets to the ferns, everyone has something to say about it! Follow one day--from sunrise to moonrise--on the slopes of a young, about-to-shout volcano.

Science-loving kids will get a kick out of this fun look at an erupting volcano, and the creative poems offer something for everyone.
