Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Like the other books in the series, "Land and Water," this is a very worthwhile nonfiction book for any elementary school seeking to add information about the Great Lakes to its collection. This book begins with narrative description of a deadly storm in November of 1975 in the waters of Lake Superior. Starting the book this way immediately grabs the attention of the young reader. The creation of Lake Superior is discussed in detail in chapter two followed by a brief description of the lake's peninsulas, islands, and canals. The lakefront's inhabitants, including the Indians, explorers, and voyageurs are discussed. Information on the lake industry as well as ecological issues such as sea lamprey and pollution are incorporated. The book concludes with a discussion of current day Lake Superior. An age-appropriate, hands-on activity is included which compares the size of Lake Superior with the other Great Lakes. Text features include a glossary, related Internet sites and books, fast facts, a table of contents, and an index. The illustrations are beautifully drawn pictures as well as color and black and white photographs. For information on the other Great Lakes, the other books in this series, "Land and Water" are great choices. 2004, Fact Finders/Capstone Press, Ages 7 to 10.
