Children's Literature - Suzanne Javid
Can you touch your nose the way a cow can? Find out in this colorful and appealing non-fiction reader with adorable farm animal pictures. Part of the "My World Series" of sixty-four books designed for young children and written in eight guided reading levels (A-H), the colorful and glossy covers are color coded to the colors of the rainbow helping children understand which books they can read next. Young readers will enjoy this fifteen-page book with colorful child-friendly photos on white backgrounds. As part of Level C, this early emergent level reader repeats use of a few high frequency words and makes use of simple one-syllable words with two to five lines of large and clear print per page. Pages have a close-up picture to text match. This level is best for the reader who can recognize, by sight, a small but increasing number of words in different contexts. A "Words to Know" page prominently displays illustrated words. The last page, titled "Notes for Adults," lists objectives, questions to ask before and after reading, as well as curriculum extensions. The publisher offers a valuable and resourceful website to educators (www.crabtree.com). Downloadable assessment guides and rubrics, goals and objectives, planning timetables, vocabulary charts, and Teacher's Guide are available. Additionally, curriculum correlation to standards and requirements for each U.S. state and Canadian province as well as the U.K and Australia is made available as are supplemental materials and blackline masters. Nine graphic organizers used to facilitate content-area instruction, reading comprehension, writing, and note-taking skills are available as a download. The publisher generously offers a free downloadable eBook to visitors as well. Author Kalman has written over eight hundred curriculum-based books. A link to an audio visit with her is available on the publisher website. Reviewer: Suzanne Javid
