From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8—Like the successful "Eyewitness" books, this series has a large format, captionlike texts, and an extravagant museum of illustrations. Large fold-out pages illustrate big ideas, e.g. [...] Each book tackles a broad subject, but glossaries, indexes, time lines, and maps help unify the information. Small boxes scattered throughout are obviously meant to capture readers' attention, but they sometimes backfire, as when the facts they provide are too mundane or obscure for the intended audience. [...] Cataclysmic events are the topic of Volcanoes & Earthquakes, but disaster-prevention techniques and related geological features, such as craters and hot springs, are also included. This book also touches on events such as the burial of Pompeii, where geology blends with archaeology. Attractive but somewhat dry overviews. --Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
