Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The introductory note on the verso of the title page lets parents and educators know that this series was developed to meet the national science standards related to life science. Set up like real reference books this series entitled "On the Farm" features a table of contents, the text and accompanying pictures, a list of new words "Words to Know" that were used in the text and are now defined, and a page with a few references to books and the Fact Hound which will take kids to a variety of appropriate web sites to find out more on the topic. The final page contains an index/word list and notes the word count and early-intervention level. An almost white kitten with gray ears is depicted and its body parts are labeled. Readers learn that cats who live on a farm usually reside near the barn where they can hunt for their own food. Proper names for male and female cats and a few other facts about cats complete the text. The word list gives as much information as the text. And the references to other books are reasonably current. A useful book for new readers. 2003, Pebble Books/Capstone, Ages 4 to 7.
