This is a surprising book. Mainly because the first words tell you that color doesn’t exist. The sky is not blue. What is color is the reflection of light and how your brain interprets it. It was a very interesting way to start this book but it’s also 100% true. This book is about more than learning your colors. It’s about learning what creates color. Overall, the book works. I’m just not sure how often it would check out.

Another excellent addition to the "Scientists in the Field" series. There are lots of volcano books for kids at the library, 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. Author Elizabeth Rusch takes readers all over the globe to visit some of the world's most explosive volcanoes and we get to meet the people living at their doorsteps, along with the scientists whose main priority is keeping folks out of harm's way. It's trickier than it sounds. Evacuating an area around an active volcano means hugely disrupting people's lives. What if you tell them to flee and you're wrong? What if you don't tell them to flee and they die?

This book has local interest for Washington state, too. Obviously, we are in the Ring of Fire and Mt. St. Helens lurks. But did you know that the VDAP (Volcano Disaster Assistance Program) has offices in Vancouver, Washington, at the Cascades Volcano Observatory? (You can check our volcano alert level here: http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/observatories/cvo/.)

Wonderfully written, with awesome photography, and packed with information, I imagine this will inspire some future vulcanologists.

Beautifully told with each section corresponding to a part of a sonata.

Edison gets all the attention when it comes to the history of electricity, so I was delighted to find this vividly drawn picture book of the life of Nikola Tesla.
