Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Written at a second or third grade reading level, and providing solid information about deserts, this book is a good choice for the beginning researcher. The book is organized into nine spreads, with a new topic introduced on each spread. Topics covered include: what are deserts, how do deserts form, desert plants, desert animals, how weather changes deserts, how people change deserts, the Sonoran Desert, the Sahara, and deserts on the map. The text is written using a simple sentence structure and a carefully controlled vocabulary. Each topic is covered in two or three short paragraphs. The large print size and consistent placement of text on the page make this title nice for beginning or reluctant readers. The book is visually appealing as well. Blue topic headings introduce the information on each spread. Full color photos accompany each spread, and a bar of color traverses the bottom of each page of text. Photos are accompanied by a caption to help students understand the connection between the photo and text. Harder words, such as evaporate, nomad, and nocturnal, are bolded and defined in the glossary. Also included are a table of contents and an index to aid in quickly locating information, and suggested books and Internet sites for further information. Part of the "Earthforms" series from Bridgestone Books, this book has great curriculum tie-in potential. An Accelerated Reader quiz is also available. 2006, Capstone Press/Bridgestone Press, Ages 5 to 12.
