About this product
- DescriptionVictor is an island in the Mediterranean Sea with high hopes. He wants to be a volca and burst with fiery pride, but how? He must go on a journey of discovery to find out the secrets of how volcaes dance and sing. This tale follows Victor on a colourful and explosive journey that introduces children to the wonderful world of volcaes and where they are found. Author Dougal Jerram, a Professor in Volcanic Rocks, has used his expertise and passion to bring volcaes to life for young children. The learning pages in the back of the book include a map of the world showing the continents where the volcaes that are featured in the book are located and the Inside the Volca explains the internal workings of a volca. A great story with a valuable education message for children and a useful guide for both parents and teachers.
