More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Don't be misled by the serious looking earth sphere that covers the front of this otherwise inviting easy-to-read book. No one told this illustrator that science books are supposed to be concrete and technical with no room for imagination and interpretation. It is rare to find a book that does a good job of providing scientific information while having the look of lovely watercolor illustrations. Earth Cycles is such a book. While the concise text provides information about three of the cyclical phenomenon created by the earth's movement, the artwork puts an earthly spin on the facts presented. To explain the connection between the lunar cycles and the tides, the reader sees a painting of a young girl standing on shore talking to a fisherman and pointing to the lighthouse far away. You can practically hear her ask, "Why is the beach so wide now and so narrow at other times?" That and other questions are answered, so open the book and enjoy the view. 2001, The Millbrook Press, $22.40. Ages 6 to 10. Reviewer: Kathleen Orosz
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-In easy-to-read but expressive language, the author explains how different cycles result in day and night and changes in time and seasons on Earth. Attractive watercolor paintings enhance the text. The uncluttered pages, many with white type on dark-blue backgrounds, will be inviting to young readers. This title will be especially useful for classroom units.-Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
