Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula K. Zeller
This title is part of the "I Like Reading About Animals!" series of "blended-text readers." A note to parents and teachers on the Contents page pointing out that the series supports the National Science Education Standards for K-4 science is followed by "Words to Know," listing four new words for "new" readers and six for "fluent" readers, along with pronunciations and definitions. Each two-page spread poses two questions. The answers to the first questions (such as "Where are these elephants going?") are geared to beginning readers and use simple language and few sentences. The answers to the second, more specific questions (such as "When do African elephants migrate?") for more advanced readers use more complex words and sentences. Every spread includes a captivating, full-page color photo of the animals on their journeys, and sometimes a second smaller photo. The text is engaging and fascinating, perfect for curious young readers. There are a few quibbles, however. The title question is puzzling—why not "how" or "why" animals migrate?—and is not addressed in the Introduction. Beginning readers are not exposed to the word "migrate" other than in the title, unless the book is read aloud and the word explained. The index is a welcome feature, but it excludes the simple names of some animals listed in the Contents. Overall the book's high interest quotient and accessibility make it a fun and enriching addition to primary classrooms and school libraries. Reviewer: Paula K. Zeller
