Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The "Lithgow Palooza Readers" are a new series of leveled nonfiction. In this book there is an opportunity to learn about the major classifications of musical instruments, with a description and picture of each. After introducing the strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and keyboard, readers can learn about the synthesizer, which can do it all. The illustrations are clear and detailed enough that you can really see the instruments. The bolded words are defined in the glossary and the text concludes with a series of questions about the text, which will stimulate thinking and discussion. This is a level two book targeted at the emerging reader—its characteristics are repetitive language, familiar and unfamiliar vocabulary, and longer sentences.
