Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Treadway M.Ed
This read-aloud is one of several in a series, "Life around the World," which showcases a variety Christmas traditions of the world. Excellent photography accompanies simple text with repetitive vocabulary to aid early readers, especially in small groups. It contains the basic parts of a reference book, such as a table of contents, glossary, and index, with an engaging question at the beginning and end. In addition, adults can help children "read more" and explore "suggested internet sites." All sections are nicely labeled by the same large red font. For every location, there is a small, plain world map with labeled continents in green, and the appropriate one is highlighted in purple. The actual country name is in orange marked with a prominent yellow dot. A consistent format with corresponding illustrations enhances comprehension. The series introduces general concepts in social studies (culture, geography, and economics) that should meet curriculum standards and implement subject integration. Reviewer: Susan Treadway, M.Ed
