Perhaps it’s that longest month of the school year and you need a boost to your science program to get you through. Perhaps it’s the end of the school year and you want to close the year on an upbeat note in science. Master Books may offer just what you were looking for with The Case of the Missing Mountain by Kim Jones. Aimed at middle schoolers and junior highers, The Case of the Missing Mountain teaches about the scientific findings from the Mount St. Helens eruption and compares it to Noah’s flood.
Using mazes, various puzzles and ciphers, crossword puzzles, and experiments that look messy and fun, Jones teaches scientific vocabulary, geology, and some fantastic new findings. Ranger Jack and Ranger Jen, who guide the search, discover clues to substantiate young earth creationism and to explain how that Mt. St. Helens is rewriting evolutionary explanations of the old earth beliefs.
The paperback book contains colorful illustrations and photographs in its eight chapters. It ends with the plan of salvation, some volcano jokes, and offers a reward online for completion of the book and a couple of extra projects. It encourages students to memorize verses about volcanoes from Isaiah 64:1-2, Micah 1:4, Psalm 104:32, and Psalm 46:1-3.
Anything about Mt. St. Helens makes interesting reading, but this format aims to capture children’s interest. My ten-year-old daughter and seven-year-old grandson competed to see who could claim this book as soon as it came, so it has child appeal. I recommend it and am considering ending my school year with it.— Debbie W. Wilson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
