Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-In the first title, Ellie and her mother temporarily move from Oregon to a California town that celebrates the migration of the monarch butterflies during the winter months. The students in her fourth-grade class contact relatives and acquaintances who live farther north to track the insects' progress and Ellie e-mails a friend in Oregon to help out. The cheery narrative culminates with the town's Monarch Festival and the arrival of the beautiful creatures. Lots of facts are presented in small sidebars. Information gathering, e-mail, and map usage are the methods of learning stressed in the narrative. Hocus Focus tells the story of a boy who resists wearing glasses. Unfamiliar words are defined in boxed insets and diagrams of lenses and the eye are included. Children will have fun with the small eye chart that is appended. Both titles are illustrated with bright, appealing artwork that features characters from different ethnic backgrounds and adds detail to both the plot and the information. Solid combinations of story and science.-Erlene Bishop Killeen, Fox Prairie Elementary School, Stoughton, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
