Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rosa Roberts
In this bilingual "Bookworms" series selection, the desert is the terrain. Not only do young readers discover through reading what the desert climate is like, but the actual photographs capture the essence of actually living in this arid region. The sweltering temperatures, the need for sun block and air conditioning, the possibility of sandstorms, the growth of wildflowers, and the cool temperatures at night are some of the details presented in this book. The English and Spanish text underneath each page facilitates the reading for bilingual readers or for readers learning one of the two languages. The Spanish translation does satisfactorily match its English counterpart. A photo glossary, an index, and a "challenge words" list in both languages are included at the end of the book. The challenging words are italicized within the text for readers. This series is a three-level reading program: emergent, early, and fluent. This specific selection is for early readers.
