Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This title, part of the "Colors" series, is specifically designed to give early readers positive exposure to expository (non-fiction) text. Key tools such as subheadings, a glossary, Internet site extensions, "read more references" and an index appear in a simplified form. Whether intentional or not, leaving out diacritical marks in the glossary's pronunciation key certainly complements the book's age-appropriateness. For the hands-on learner and artist within, the story ends with an activity, complete with directions and photos. This book appeals to a variety of young children from pre-readers in a read-aloud setting to independent beginning readers up to 2nd grade level. With large photographs and clear text, it introduces and categorizes many everyday items in a child's world. Sidebars contain extra facts for higher-level readers. The only caveat is that adults should avoid too much direct instruction and formality and, instead, rely on the design of the book to captivate and intrigue the young child. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 7.
