Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Kirkham Martin
This recent title in the "First Step Nonfiction" series views a rural community through the eyes of a young boy. Crisp photos of farms and rolling countryside landscapes give a clear look at life in the country. The kinds of farms include those that grow crops, as well as those that raise cattle. In the country, folks rely on trucks, cars, farm machinery, and horses. The closest neighbors are quite far away. Native American reservations and small African villages are included in this text about country living. The simple, repetitive language makes it accessible for newly independent readers. Back matter includes more facts about country living, a word and picture glossary, and an index. Standards of learning for many early elementary social studies curriculums include rural living, making this a solid addition to school and public library collections. Reviewer: Carol Kirkham Martin
