Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Were you aware that Lake Titicaca in South America is the highest lake on Earth or that the Israel's Dead Sea is the lowest point on the Earth? These are but two of the 101 facts about lakes presented in this nonfiction book making it a useful enhancement to an elementary school unit on natural resources. A one-page introduction to the benefits of and dangers to lakes provides a foundation that each page builds on. Subsequent information is presented in list format, making it very easy for elementary-aged students to read. Each fact is numbered and featured in a paragraph of text with between six to ten facts per two-page spread. The range of topics includes the diversity of the world's lakes, statistics on various lakes, a discussion of the plants and animals that live in and around lakes, and factors that have affected lakes over history such as weather and man. In the beginning of the book is a helpful map highlighting the major lakes of the world. For ease of use, a glossary and index are included; words included in the glossary are presented in the text in bold font. In addition, excellent web links for additional information on lakes and a list of suggested books for further reading are provided. 2004 (orig. 2003), Gareth Stevens Publishing/World Almanac Education Group, Ages 8 to 11.
