K-Gr. 3. This new edition of a primary-grade science standard retains the 1990 text but has new illustrations. Some of the paintings feature children demonstrating wave-related activities and earthquake safety procedures, but the most effective pictures are those that show the unseen and unseeable, such as cross-sections of mountains, volcanoes, and faults in the earth's moving crust. One double-page spread concerns a 1939 earthquake off the Chilean coast that resulted in a tsunami. From the dependable Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, this book explains what earthquakes are and what to do when they occur. Carolyn Phelan
