Children's Literature - Barbara Wheatley
Kalman, well-known for nonfiction books, delivers another winner with the "Introducing Living Things" series. With colorful labeled photos and drawings, bolded content words in the text, and guided reading levels aimed at first and second grade, these books include excellent resources for younger readers. Complete with a "Contents" page, a "Words to Know" section, and an "Index" page, the books make it easy for beginning readers to locate information. "Am I a living thing?" readers are asked, and learn the answer is yes! Kalman begins with the explanation of cells, how human bodies are created from cells, and then leads into what makes a human a mammal. The five senses are explored, followed by the needs of humans—water, air, sunlight, energy, food, and other people. The concept of birth and the human life cycle are described in simple, easy to understand terms. This is an excellent resource for any elementary student or classroom since it combines easy to read text, child appealing photographs, and relevant information. Reviewer: Barbara Wheatley
