Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - L. A. Gallaway
Emma and Owen try to help their friend, Old Oak, (an animated tree) keep warm in the winter. This easy reader tells a story of friendship and caring in simple, repetitious sentences. Each page features one to two sentences that are illustrated by cheerful acrylic paintings that support and extend the text. Familiar topics, vocabulary, and setting all support the beginning reader. This is one book in the "Read-it! Readers: Science Series" that features Emma and Owen and Old Oak. Familiarity with the characters, setting, and writing style will support readers as they encounter other books in this series. This story addresses seasonal changes of plants, animals, and even people as Emma and Owen attempt to dress Old Oak in winter clothes to keep warm. There are many helpful features in this book that support the educator as well. There are sidebars with winter season facts that are inserted at appropriate points in the story. After the story there is a list of suggested winter activities, a glossary, and suggestions for books and websites to learn more about winter. Reviewer: L. A. Gallaway
