Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Veronica Bartles
Part of the "What Grows in Your Garden" series, this book is a basic first step to learning about lettuce. Rooney answers basic questions, such as "What does lettuce need to grow?" "Who likes to eat lettuce?" and "Why is lettuce good for you?" The photographs are colorful, vibrant and eye-catching, with bright, inset labels to point out the details mentioned within the text. The information presented in the text is somewhat basic for the youngest pre-readers, making this book ideal for read-aloud situations, as Rooney provides just enough information to keep it interesting while holding the often-limited attention of children who aren't yet reading for themselves. A glossary at the back of the book provides detailed definitions for the more uncommon words, providing a little bit more depth into the subject for older researchers. This book is the most in-depth of the series, with more detail about the subject than the other titles, but it would be nice if, in addition to the glossary, there was a list of resources for further reading, to aid young readers looking to learn more about lettuces. Children trying to find information for a school assignment may be frustrated at this lack. However, this book does work as a stand-alone title for those who simply want to learn about how lettuce grows for their own, personal enjoyment. Reviewer: Veronica Bartles
