Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This offering, from Kingfisher's "I Wonder Why" series, explores various features of mountains. Using a question and answer format, this title begins with an explanation of the difference between a mountain and a hill. The discussion is simple, short and developmentally appropriate for primary school students. Every spread features a blend of realistic illustrations and goofy, child-appealing cartoons. Additionally, there are some amusing supplemental facts, which are set off with gray dots, supporting the main text. However, the questions themselves are not consistently child-centered and some appear contrived. For example, the second question, "Can spacecraft measure mountains?" is set up in such a way that we know the answer will be in the affirmative. A more child-centered question might have been—how do you measure mountains? Nevertheless, this slim book acts as a nice introduction to one aspect of geology, and would be an appropriate purchase for free-choice science reading in the second- or third-grade classroom. 2004 (orig. 1991), Kingfisher Publications, Ages 5 to 8.
