School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Two clearly written introductions to topics about which children often have questions. Dyslexia is the less successful of the two as it combines several different processing deficits under that one heading, whereas now people in the field look for more specific reasons for reading problems. The book gives examples of reading difficulties and makes clear that a reading problem can be overcome. There are no details on treatment, however, except to say that computers may be used and that children who are having difficulties should let an adult know. Beginning with a photograph of a louse, Head Lice describes the habits of these pests, how they are transmitted from one person to another, and what children and their families must do to get rid of them. Although the text states that "they can lay their eggs anywhere your head has been," which is not generally believed, the rest of the information is accurate. Both books have full-color photos, one-page glossaries, and simple indexes.-Margaret C. Howell, West Springfield Elementary School, VA
