Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Starting from a photograph of a bird's-eye view and moving to the snapshots on the ground level of construction, young readers learn about the building of skyscrapers. This informational text begins with a brief description of what a skyscraper is and what it looks like. Short descriptions of its construction from planning to preparations to completion are in brief text and the full-page, color photographs illustrate some of the processes involved in the building of a skyscraper. Although the text may seem simple and the words are few, young readers may need support with the content-specific vocabulary and informational text's usage. This informational text features a table of contents, glossary and index. There are resources in the back of the book for further investigation including the Facthound website that directs the users to internet sites about skyscrapers. For those readers wanting to know more about construction, this book is one in the "Construction Zone" set. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
