Charming short stories really, each chapter is a new adventure that Clarence has with his young owners...all very simple and everyday sorts of fun. I love children's book from the 1950's for this very reason!

An excellent elementary level discussion of Mount St. Helens and its eruption of 1980. Contains good before and after photos and diagrams; however, this book was published in 1986, so the "healing" part of the text is missing over 35 years of data.

A non-fiction Newbery Honor Book about the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980 and the area's subsequent regrowth. Eh. Clearly meant for kids, but it accomplishes this in simplistic language only. I mean, come on, this is a cool topic, so a book for kids about it should be more interesting than this one is. Also, the photos included were weirdly hard to figure out; for example, some of them were meant to focus on something that was *way* in the background of the actual photo, and a couple had blurbs that talked about features of the mountain that I could not find in the photo at all. Some sort of arrow pointing out said feature would have been great and seems like an obvious necessity to me. Anyway. I'll file this one in the Could Have Been Cool But Missed the Boat box.… (mere)
