Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Lynch
The "Eyewitness" series has always been a surefire way to interest kids in informational books. The recent selection of nonfiction readers are aimed at primary grade children is no disappointment. Four levels are offered to accommodate readers from the emergent level to the proficient level. In Animal Hospital, two boys find an injured duck, which leads them to a very interesting visit with a veterinarian. After seeing the duck receive treatment for its injured wing, they are invited to learn more about what a vet does by sitting in she treats kittens, a rabbit, a dog, and even a horse. The story is accompanied by snippets of information separated from the text in boxes. Clear, colorful photographs help to tell the story. This book is a Level 2 (for children who are beginning to read alone), but is presented in a format that is very engaging for readers even above that level. A happy ending with a little surprise will make this book a favorite in the future careers collection of your library.
