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 Iorio. 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. Bears come in a variety of sizes from the giant polar bear to the relatively diminutive sun bear and a variety of colors. Some bears eat only vegetation while others are omnivores. 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." Bears! is a Level 1 book, guided reading level E-F, Spache reading level 1.89. Lesson plans can be found at www.harperteachers.com. 2005, HarperCollins, Ages 5 to 6.
