Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
You may have wondered about many health questions that are answered specifically in this book by Sandy Donovan. The photographs are colorful and add interest and comprehension to the seventeen topics discussed. Examples of information in this book concern eating fish. Does it really make one smarter to eat fish? Another example of topics discussed is crossing your eyes. Will this have long-term effects? Reading this fascinating book is a way for students and adults to learn which oldwives tales are based on fact and which on fiction. This book is attractive and sturdily bound to last through many readings. The "Is That a Fact" series is a super way to help readers learn the truth in areas of concern without studying many texts to find the correct answer. Further helpful information in this book can be found in the glossary, the source notes, the bibliography, the list of further reading, and the index. Reviewer: Jennie DeGenaro
