Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
This attractive and simple nonfiction text is designed to help young readers reflect on their personal experience and build new understandings about family relationships. The colorful, appealing, and diverse photographs of cousins shown in a variety of roles will interest young readers and aid in their comprehension. The large plain font supports simple sentences, familiar vocabulary, and many words with predictable letter-sound relationships for easy decoding. There are only two to three lines of print per page, and the highly supportive illustrations match the message on each page. With adult assistance, early readers will enjoy using the table of contents, glossary, suggested Internet sites, and the index. This book about cousins is one in a series of ten books about families. The entire "Families" series can be read and enjoyed by children in a kindergarten or first grade classroom in support of the national social studies curriculum standards for elementary students.
