Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
This thirty-two page book carries a ton of interesting and useful information for students who are learning about our natural resources. The book's beginning paragraph invites readers to look around and see Earth's natural resources for themselves and understand how the resources help all of us survive and enjoy life on our planet. The well-written text shows that soil is a basic and important resource and goes on to point out how all that we see in a movie theater, such as seats, popcorn, and film, comes from natural resources. The format offers short sections of information and is accompanied by bright, clear photos that make the text more understandable. Fact bars are peppered throughout, as are graphs and charts that contain such information as how coal is formed and the properties of gemstones. Projects for students to try are included, with step-by-step directions and photos. All books in this "Planet Earth" series end with pages on what students can do to make a difference in our world. A complete glossary and full index follow up the main body of text. Science consultant Suzy Gazlay, M.A., has approved information offered. The book is considered to be a "hi-lo" (high interest-low vocabulary) book, written at a third-grade level. It will make an excellent addition to a classroom's science curriculum.
