Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
Writing a research report sounds so formidable to some students that it almost paralyzes them but not if they have this easy to understand, explanatory book by Nancy Loewen. It is well-written and easy to follow. Students writing their first research report will benefit from having a copy of this book. Students will learn from reading it how to write research reports. The author explains the thirteen tools or steps, which may sound like a large amount of work to a beginning writer, however, these steps are made simple. For example, the first tool is selecting a topic, and the last tool is the bibliography. Tools are given in sequence making the project simple. To make this definitive explanation of a book on writing research reports more interesting, there is an illustration of a student doing her research on platypuses. The research on platypuses is written in a font that brings to mind a student actual writing a report. This demonstration brings writing research reports down to real life. There are eight titles in the series that will be a boon to beginning writers, whether adult or juvenile. At the close of the book are review sections, "Let's Review," "Getting Started Exercises," "Writing Tips," a "Glossary," and a "Bibliography." Reviewer: Jennie DeGenaro
