Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Early pioneers cut down trees and used the trunks to build their homes or log cabins. Read the brief and general descriptions of what a log cabin is and how it is built. There are full-page, color photographs and illustrations that show some parts of the construction process. The text and photographs provide views of the inside portion of the log cabin. The information is presented and organized with simple features, such as a table of contents, chapter headings, glossary, and index. Some children may benefit from guidance on using the informational text features and the content vocabulary. Those young readers wishing to learn more about log cabins may find the additional book titles and the FactHound internet site listed in the back of the book useful. In addition, those students studying structures may find the other books in the "Look Inside" series helpful. Presented in a similar format are the pyramid, igloo, and tepee.
