My Thoughts: This is a great read aloud to supplement the fourth grade New York Delta FOSS Kit unit on Earth Movements. It’s a simple example of how narrative nonfiction and expository nonfiction are often blended together within the same text. The illustrated characters who narrate the text are a little distracting but you can choose whether or not to read their speech bubbles out loud.
