Children's Literature
The objective of this emergent reader series is to welcome new readers and in particular to provide factual information in an interesting format. The "Hard Work" series introduces children to people they will encounter in the community. In this entry, kids get a brief glimpse into the life of a group of firefighters. There is an alarm, they do respond and they put out the building fire. Fullpage, fullcolor dramatic photographs appear on the right hand page with a simple two or three sentence teXt on the left. Young readers will learn about a few aspects of the job and firefighter's equipment. Bolded words are defined in a section entitled "New Words," and it should be noted that the definitions are specific to the teXt, alternate definitions are not presented. There is a page that lists books and web sites to help kids find out more (note that no dates are given for the books cited). There is an indeX and a brief mention of the author and the consultants on the final page, and there is an opening table of contents page. 2000, Grolier, $13.50 and $4.95. Ages 4 to 7.
