Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rosa Roberts
In this "Earth in Action" series from Pebble Plus, young bilingual readers will learn about the devastation of floods on land, property, and humans. The simplistic English and Spanish informational text guides readers on the definition, causes, dangers, and safety precautions with this natural disaster. The top to bottom bilingual text assists beginning readers in either language. Large color photographs will captivate young readers with the reality of the destruction. This six series selection would make great read aloud for science reinforcement in a classroom or a welcome addition to a school library collection to coincide with the national science standards. The book has 21 pages of information rich text understandable to any young reader. A table of contents, glossary, Internet sites, and index are included in the pages. The oversize dimensions of the book eases the reader with all the facts pertaining to this common natural disaster in the United States. Reviewer: Rosa Roberts
