Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This new series of early readers, "Time for Kids Science Scoops," is taken from material prepared by the editors along with Nicole Ioria. Like any other early reader series, the books are leveled—Level 1 is targeted for beginning readers, Level 2 for developing readers and Level 3 is designed for confident readers. The full-page photographs have text boxes superimposed, but the judicious layout of the text boxes is such that no important information is lost from the images. The books in the series are nonfiction and while the text is at times choppy and often just a litany of facts, they are interesting facts. Bats are mammals and the only ones that fly. There are more than a thousand kinds of bats and bats use echolocation to find food. Some of the pictures are quite graphic which will really grab the attention of readers, especially those who enjoy gross "stuff." The Level 1 books contain a words to know picture glossary, while Level two also adds a section of interesting factoids entitled "Did You Know?" Level 3 adds even another small section of "Fun Facts." Bats! is a Level 3 book, guided reading level N-O, Spache reading level 3.00. Lesson plans can be found at www.harperteachers.com. 2005, HarperCollins, Ages 5 to 7.
