Children's LiteraturePebble Books' "Our World" series includes 8 titles that brush a broad stroke around the globe as a child begins to expand his interest in the world beyond his own borders. After reading 185 words, he will know that Australia is a continent of contrasts, from rainforests to the Outback. He will get a peek at two animals that populate this vast country. Devoting one page each to sports, language, transportation, agriculture, money, and natural wonders, the author gives a young reader a very brief look at this large topic. Serving the needs of emergent or struggling readers, Pebble Books introduces children to places they will surely want to get to know better. This easy reader enables teachers to incorporate social studies into reading practice. A table of contents, glossary, bibliography, and index enhance the teaching according to early information literacy standards. 2002, Pebble Books/Capstone Press, Ages 6 to 9.
