Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This nice addition to the libraries for emerging readers is one in the "Life Cycle" series, providing a basic natural history lesson using very simple sentences paired with photos. The book has several strong structures that will reassure some new readers and annoy others. The chronological order of the cycle, from egg to egg, is natural and appropriate to the book. The next two structures could have varied slightly in my view, but may be appreciated more by a new reader. Physically, the book is arranged by page pairs, with even pages holding the picture and odd pages holding 10-20 words. For example, on page four, the photo shows salmon eggs. On page five, the text reads, "A salmon begins life as an egg in a river." The sentences themselves hold another structure. All of them move in easy subject-predicate-object format. The book has a total of 141 words, some of them repeated. Trumbauer also includes a Table of Contents, Index, and sections titled Words to Know, Read More, Internet Sites, and a Word List. 2003, Pebble Books/Capstone Press, Hansen
