An Island Grows
by Lola M. Schaefer

An Island Grows is the story of a volcanic island that is formed in the ocean, told simply from the first red hot magma that leaks into the floor of the ocean, to the building of the island, to its becoming populated with plants, animals, and people. Brief rhyming sentences and simple illustrations describe the profound sequence in clear and easy words for all ages.
Brilliant in its simplicity! A must have for science in classrooms and libraries.
