Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Norah Piehl
The premise of the "We Both Read" series is that parents and their beginning readers take turns, the adult reading the more advanced text on the left hand page followed by the child reading the basic text on the facing page. This volume covers the changing seasons of the year, discussing both the scientific reasons for the seasons and the range of activities related to the changing weather. For example, the parent reads, "Not every place in the Northern Hemisphere gets snow during the winter. In some places, such as Hawaii and Mexico, it stays warm all year long—even in the winter." On the facing page, the child reads, "Kids do not care if it is warm or cold. They just like to play." Boldface words in the adult's text reappear in the child's portion, also boldfaced to aid in recognition. Children will probably respond more favorably to the cheery, full-color photographs and discussion of season-specific activities than they will to the scientific principles, which are difficult to grasp in this context.
