Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy S. Hansen
This basic question book reads like an interview with a knowledgeable science teacher. “Is it the same time all over the world?” reads one question. “No. When the Sun is the highest in the sky it is midday. But because Earth is always spinning, midday happens at different times in different places.” Part of the “Read Me!” series, the book uses common questions, creates understandable answers, and punctuates the answers with light-hearted jokes, e.g.: the time question shows a family eating a picnic in the middle of the night, with a caption explaining that time zones prevent this practice. Each double-spread addresses one or two questions but seem to have no relationship to the questions that come before or after. Some continuity might have been nice, but the book will still make a good addition to science shelves in classrooms and libraries. Students will enjoy paging through the book but it will only work as a reference book if the students happen to have the exact question the book answers. Still at thirty-two pages, it should not take anyone too long to look through and see if her question is addressed. Back matter includes a list of more reference materials, an index, and glossary. Reviewer: Amy S. Hansen; Ages 6 to 8.
