Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathy Leggett
Thick or thin, fuzzy or smooth, big or tiny, leaves are an important part of a plant. This book give a close-up look. From the first turn of large over-sized pages, young plant enthusiasts will be enthralled with the vivid photographs and diagrams that depict in detail how a leaf is the manufacturer of food for the plant. The photographs are just right for bringing a leaf up close so each detail can be easily consumed by the reader. Leaves is written with beginning readers in mind; it includes a carefully controlled vocabulary, short repetitive sentences with text that directly correlates to the photograph. Each of these characteristics is then combined with nonfiction components that include a table of contents, a glossary, titles, highlighted vocabulary, labeled diagrams, an index, and references, all interrelated, enabling even the very youngest reader to read, learn, and enjoy an informational book. The text supports national science standards. Leaves would be an excellent read aloud for teachers and parents who are looking to offer children an informal exposure to science curriculum content. Leaves is just one of the books in this early reader series; other titles highlight different parts of the plant: fruits, stems, seeds, and roots. Each book in this series focuses on one plant part yet culminates in a way that ensures that the reader understands that each plant part is vital and that they must all work together to enable a plant to grow and thrive.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-These books discuss the purpose of each featured part, its diversity among various types of plants, and its function as food for humans. Each spread has a clear color photo that covers a strip of the left-hand page as well as the entire right side. The illustrations are particularly interesting because of their varying perspectives, some taken at ground level, others reaching upward to the soaring heights of treetops. The texts consist of two easy sentences per spread. Some of the explanations are unnecessarily simplified, and the science suffers a bit. In Stems, for example, the text misleadingly says "Leaves make food out of sunlight," without mentioning water and minerals. As indicated in a note to parents and teachers, these books are designed to provide reading practice as well as subject knowledge and specific vocabulary.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, NJ Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
