Where in the world are there the most volcanoes?
Summary In the book, Eruption, I read all about volcanoes. I learned that there are many different types of volcanoes. Some volcanoes are cone-shaped, but others are low and wide. The various types of volcanoes erupt in different ways. The cone-shaped ones erupt with a bang, the low and wide ones erupt gently, and there are others that erupt violently. Mauna Loa is the largest volcano in the world. After volcanoes erupt, they leave a hole called a crater. The craters sometimes fill with water and become lakes, but some craters become dry and grassy plains. I enjoyed reading all about volcanoes. I hope that someday I’ll have the opportunity to visit one in real life.
