9780066239309: Island Grows, An

This is the story of the birth of an island, from the first red-hot glow of magma at the bottom of the ocean, to the flowing lava that hardens and builds up higher and higher until, finally, it breaks through the water′s surface.

And then, life comes to the island. First come the small plants and animals, and later, people. This is a tale as old-and as new-as the ground we walk on.

About the Author:

Lola M. Schaefer is the author of several books for children, including An Island Grows; Pick, Pull, Snap! Where Once a Flower Bloomed, an NCTE Notable Children's Book in the Language Arts; and What's Up, What's Down? She lives with her husband, Ted, in the mountains of north Georgia, where she occasionally observes the back end of a black bear, coyote, or gray fox.



Cathie Felstead has also illustrated Big Wolf and Little Wolf, by Sharon Phillips Denslow, and An Island Grows, by Lola M. Schaefer. She studied illustration at the Royal College of Art in London and lives in Hertfordshire, England.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. In this picture book Schaefer chronicles the formation of a volcanic island, the changes wrought by waves and weather, and the transformations brought about by the arrival of plants, insects, birds, and people. At the book's end, another volcano erupts beneath the sea, and the process begins again. Short phrases in rhymed couplets create a distinctive, staccato text for the simple geology lesson: "Stone breaks. / Water quakes. / Magma glows. / Volcano blows / Lava flows / and flows / and flows. / An island grows." The last page offers a more detailed description of the geological forces that form volcanic islands, followed by a short bibliography. As economical and vivid as the verse, Felstead's artwork will enable children to visualize the island in each stage of development--from a fiery magma beneath the water to a place with a distinctive ecosystem, community, and culture. A good choice for preschool and primary-grade science collections. Carolyn Phelan
