Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Treadway M.Ed
This read-aloud is one of several in a series, "Life around the World," that celebrates birthdays of children from assorted countries. It also offers the engaging question, "When is your birthday?" Spirited photography accompanies simple text with repetitive vocabulary to aid early readers. It contains the basic parts of a reference book such as a table of contents, glossary, and index. In addition, adults can help children "read more" and explore "suggested internet sites." All sections are nicely labeled by the same large orange font. A small, plain world map with labeled continents in green indicates every location, with the appropriate one highlighted in purple. The actual country name is in orange marked with a prominent yellow dot. A consistent format aids comprehension, with corresponding birthday party scenes. The series introduces general concepts in social studies (culture, geography, and economics) that should meet curriculum standards and easily integrate subjects, especially in small groups. Reviewer: Susan Treadway, M.Ed
