This picture book is a great teaching tool for your little one and for you. It is like illustrated encyclopedia of volcanoes for every kid. The pictures are clear and the colors are nice. If you are ready to challenge your mind and prove to everyone that you are the king of volcanoes knowledge, then pick up this book and prepare for the ultimate trivia experience. Test your fact knowledge as you look at some of the most captivating facts about volcanoes. Do you know that? Japan has 10% of the world’s active volcanoes. Iceland is made up almost entirely of volcanic rocks like those found on the ocean floor. It gradually built up above sea level through intense and prolonged eruptions. In August 1986, a cloud mixture of carbon dioxide and water rose from Lake Nyos, a crater lake in Cameroon (western Africa). The heavy gas cloud flowed downhill and gathered in the valleys, asphyxiating 1,700 people and 3,500 livestock living in the villages below. An acid lake in the crater of Kawah-Idjen in Indonesia absorbs gases rising from the volcano, creating a lake so toxic it can burn through human flesh in minutes Magma is Latin for “dregs of ointment,” which derives from the Proto Indo-European mag meaning “kneading.” The term “magma” in its geological sense as molten rock was first used in 1865. The earliest known picture of a volcano is the nearly 8,000-year-old wall painting of an eruption of Hasan Dag volcano in Turkey. The houses of a town, Çatalhöyük, can be seen at the mountain’s base. In Japan, “baths” in warm volcanic sand are believed to cure many illnesses. The largest volcano found in the solar system is Olympus Mons on Mars, though it is now extinct. Venus may have at one time produced more volcanoes than any other planet in our solar system, though they are all now extinct. While no other planet besides Earth shows active volcanoes, Io, one of Jupiter’s moons, shows volcanoes that are erupting. The most lava ever recorded from a single eruption was the 1783 Laki eruption in Iceland. Though there was no single big explosion, this eruption killed one fourth of Iceland’s population by producing poisonous gases and clouds of ash that resulted in widespread crop failure and starvation. As you read this book over and over to your child it won't be long before they are the ones pointing to the picture and telling you what it is. The author Katy Gleit wrote this book for her own two grandchildren Dani and Deia: In " Volcanoes: 100 Illustrated Fun Facts " your children are given a well-selected knowledge along with entertaining information about the volcanoes. In addition, a set of wonderful pictures show exactly what a volcanoes looks like.

On January 7, 1610, Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei turned his newly developed telescope to Jupiter. He discovered four objects orbiting the giant planet. It took him another night’s observations to clearly distinguish between two of them. He called them “The Medicean planets”, after the Medici family (who ruled Italy at the time), and gave them numbers. German astronomer Simon Marius also claimed to have seen these objects at about the same time. He never published any documentation, and the credit was given to Galileo. It was nearly 250 years later before they were given names. They are now known as the Galilean moons, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. They were created at the same time as Jupiter and contain 99.999 percent of all the mass in orbit around Jupiter. How much do you know about these moons? What would Ganymede be called if it did not orbit Jupiter? What is the most volcanic place in our solar system? Why does Europa have spots? Which moon is a good candidate for containing life? Find out the answers to these questions and more and amaze your family and friends with these fun facts. Ages 8 and up. All measurements in American and metric.

What happens when an evolutionary biologist is overwhelmed with scientific evidences of God's plan in nature? After three years of trying to "prove evolution" to skeptical professors in his science department, Gary Parker finally realized that the scientific evidence we see in God's world agrees with what we read in God's Word. In Creation Facts of Life, Dr. Parker respectfully describes the evidences he once used to "preach" evolution - but then he explains how the "rest of the evidence" points away from evolution and toward a perfect world created by God, ruined by man, restored to new life in Christ! In easy-to-follow conversational style, Dr. Parker discusses: DNA and genetics Life Before birth Mutations Adaptations Natural Selection Fossils The Geologic Column The Grand Canyon
