Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Justina Engebretson
All over the world, people collect things, from hats to Ty Beanie Babies to McDonald toys to books to erasers. Often times the difficulty in beginning a collection arises at the following starting points: what to collect and how to begin the collection. A part of the "Kids' Guide" series, this middle reader is an excellent resource to help any kid start his or her collection today. The book looks at nine specific types of collections, including a stamp collection, baseball card collection, and rock collection. The guide describes how to begin each of these collections and how to display and organize the collection. True to the series, fun facts are scattered throughout the pages relating such information to the readers as the first person to collect coins and some of the most valuable items that have been collected. Photographs of collectable items that accompany the text bring the collections to life and draw the reader's attention to the pages. Unfamiliar vocabulary is highlighted in green and a definition is given for each word at the bottom of the page. The vocabulary words along with their definitions can be quickly accessed in the glossary provided at the back of the book. For the serious blossoming collector, a list of both book and internet resources are also provided for further study. Overall, this book will most likely capture the interest of many elementary age students. Reviewer: Justina Engebretson
