Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Leis-Newman
As a basic look at the life cycle, large text and huge color pictures make this an easy-to-understand book for the kindergarten student. It adheres to the basic national standards related to health and physical education. The text explains how the cycle of life begins with an egg cell and sperm forming a zygote. As the cells split, the embryo is formed. At this point in the text, there is a large picture of a fetus attached to the umbilical cord. The fetus is born at around thirty-eight to forty weeks, at which point it is called a baby. The baby becomes a toddler, which becomes a child, which becomes a teenager. There is nothing to fault here with the accuracy of the text, but the wording is awkward. Parents may wince at "humans grow to their full size from about ages 12 to 18. The body also prepares itself to make babies." However, the next page states that adults start families, and the life cycle begins again. Legacy is explained with "A person's life cycle ends when the person dies. Still, the life cycle goes on with the person's children and grandchildren." Students will start getting a sense of basic reproduction, and early or emergent readers will understand the 202 words in the main text. The sturdy library binding, graphics, and pictures make the price point reasonable, but libraries should consider how often this book would be read and used. It is part of the "Healthy and Your Body" series. Reviewer: Elizabeth Leis-Newman
