Descripción

Los animales del bosque están sorprendidos cuando la montaña explota repentinamente, cubriendo la tierra en cenizas rocosas, calientes y en piedras que hacen imposible la supervivencia para muchas plantas y animales. La tuza sobrevive en su madriguera subterranean con comida para alimentarse. ¿Cómo ayuda la tuza a que la montaña se recupere? Los científicos pasan años observando el regreso de la vida a la montaña siguiendo la erupción volcánica de Mount St. Helens el 18 de mayo de 1980. Esta historia de ficción está basada en las sorprendentes observaciones de cómo la vida regresa a una área que ha sido totalmente cambiada o destruída.

Sobre el autor

On September 11, 1961, Terry Catasús Jennings landed in the United States after a short flight from Cuba. On September 12th, she was enrolled in seventh grade in an American school. Her family, including her father who had been jailed during the Bay of Pigs invasion, was now in a free country. The only catch for twelve-year-old Terry was that she could count in English and recite the days of the week and the months of the year, but not much more. Often being the only Cuban in her school—even through college—Terry knows what it’s like to be the new kid on the block. She is delighted to have the opportunity, with Definitely Dominguita, to portray a child of immigrants who is normal—no different than her peers—other than she loves the classics (like Jennings did as a child) and thinks Cuban food rules.

    When a volcano erupts, is it possible for the surrounding countryside which has been devastated to recover, and if so, how can it occur? All the animals in the wilderness, such as the snowshoe hare, the black bear, the gopher, the elk, the squirrel, sense that something is different on the nearby mountain. The ground shakes. Steam and ash burst from the mountain’s top. Then the volcano erupts. Many of the animals are killed, but gopher is safe in his burrow with plenty of tasty roots and bulbs to eat. Over the next few days, weeks, months, and years, what happens to bring both plant and animal life back to the mountain area? And what part does gopher play in it all? This fictionalized story, with text by science author Terry Catasus Jennings and art by scientific illustrator Laurie O’Keefe, is based on the surprising observations made by scientists who have spent years studying the return of life to the mountain following the eruption of Mt. St. Helens on May 18, 1980. The “For Creative Minds” section has further information on volcanoes and tectonic plates, a quiz concerning how natural disasters bring habitat changes, and a hands-on activity about pressure and melting. In addition, sixty to seventy pages of cross-curricular teaching activities and three interactive reading comprehension and math quizzes on Gopher to the Rescue can be found at the publisher’s website to help parents and educators extend the learning possibilities. It is a picture book that is both fun to read and great as a launching pad for educational discussion.
