Book Overview

The beast beneath the mountain is restless.

No one in the bustling city of Pompeii worries when the ground trembles beneath their feet. The beast under the mountain Vesuvius, high above the city, wakes up angry sometimes -- and always goes back to sleep.But Marcus is afraid. He knows something is terribly wrong -- and his father, who trusts science more than mythical beasts, agrees. When Vesuvius explodes into a cloud of fiery ash and rocks fall from the sky like rain, will they have time to escape -- and survive the epic destruction of Pompeii?

   I like that he was interested in reading them without my ...
My son has read all the books. He also said he was interested in reading them without my recommendation. Yes, they are not useful for teaching history. They have led to some interesting conversations at our dinner table, he said. However, he will have some basis for understanding and can explore further on his own.
If you want your kid to feel like he or she is being made to learn, then History is the way to go. Yes, my kids can't get them fast enough. Unlike other books where they can't seem to recall anything worth telling, Campbell and Ewell have lots of thought and questions about the issues. The key to success is always to have the rest of the lesson at their request, he said. They are written intelligently but for kids and deal with serious issues in history in a very realistic way, Mr. D'Antonio said.
   My fifth grade students love this series
My fifth-grade students absolutely love the show. This episode was a bit tough for them to connect with since it's set in the year 79, but the exposure is good for them to boost knowledge, and the lexile level is easy enough for most students to understand, he said. I enjoy how Tarsshi uses a young person's perspective of the disaster and often uses flashbacks or flash-forwards to present the story. I'd recommend this series to readers ages 8 and up who enjoy historical fiction and adventure.
   I highly recommend this entire series of books.
The boys are thrilled with every book and look forward to every new I survived book that comes out. If you enjoyed the first three, I recommend the entire series. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! History aside, these two movies are great educational tools.
   Short, but could be better
Lauren Tarshis never fails to impress, but this was one of her lesser pieces and had inaccurate facts, considering. I studied Pompeii for a year and a half. Although some facts were true, such as the eyewitness account of Pliny, the reconstruction was not as impressive as the original. But, Vesuvius gave no warning what so ever, and everyone died, for there was no escape, as the oceans were raging and considering how advanced their transportation was in AD 79.
   Great book!
I'm a huge fan of the book series because it's not just a book but a learning opportunity. I have visited Pompeii and it is truly amazing. I've also been to other places in Europe, and there is so much history there. The book is very good.
   Awesome doods
I love this book my favourite part was when he said he would be brave enough to get to the end of the tunnel.
I use it in my classroom and my kids love it. They want me to read it all at once, rather than one chapter a day. It's great to be able to learn more, even if it means doing some math.
   I Survived Pompeii...
I'm not a huge fan of Michael Lewis, but this book is very good. I especially liked the author's story and the ending, which was very good. Highly recommend.
   Brings history to life!
I read this in advance of sharing my child and really liked it -- uplifting and it also brings the past to life, Morgenthau said. But I will re-introduce it to her when she is in 2nd or 3rd grade as it will be helpful in making history real and not a list of names and dates to memorize as i had felt when i was a kid.
