Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With brief, accessible text, engaging topics and a perforated page of collectible cards Seymour Simon's See More Reader series will rope in even the most reluctant readers. According to Danger! Earthquake, "most of the world's earthquakes happen in a zone called the Pacific Ring of Fire." A map of the world highlights the hot spots. Bulldozers, dump trucks and offshore oil rigs get their due in Giant Machines. Additional offerings include Wild Bears; Killer Whales; and Planets Around the Sun. (Apr.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Simple sentences with easy-to-read phrases present an overview of these topics for beginning readers. Information is presented in just two or three sentences per page, and the large font size will make the books attractive to emerging readers. Simon's writing is clear and straightforward. Although there is no glossary, the author uses good examples to help readers understand terms. In addition, Wild Bears sends an important message to its audience with an appeal to children to do their part to preserve these animals: "If we want to have bears in nature, we need to leave a home for them. The future of bears is up to us." The books include a number of stunning, colorful, glossy photos that are sure to pique young readers' interest. These solid choices will appeal on several levels.-Cathie E. Bashaw, Somers Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
