Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
It is a fun classroom project when students get to think about the importance of their grandparents and their contributions to our society. Lisa Tucker McElroy has created a useful tool for such a project or classroom theme. Along with other books of the "Grandmothers at work" series, Ms. McElroy's book takes a look at a grandmother in a notsousual occupation. Follow along as Russell Mead introduces us to his grandmother, Sylvia Earle, a deepsea explorer. With interesting text and numerous photographs, we see the important work Ms. Earle does and how proud Russell is of his grandmother. Ms. McElroy effectively conveys young Russell's words and thoughts, giving great detail regarding his grandmother's occupation. While the information in the book only scratches the surface of deepsea exploration, it will definitely spark the interest of a child, and encourage them to find out more about this amazing occupation. 2000, The Millbrook Press, Ages 3 to 10, $22.90. Reviewer: John D. Orsborn
School Library Journal
Gr 3-4-Grandmothers are getting younger every day, and Sylvia Earle, pioneering marine biologist, has joined the ranks of this esteemed group. Written in the first person from her 10-year-old grandson's point of view, the text describes "G-mom's" dedication to protecting the marine environment and her work to further the awareness and knowledge of this precious resource. Full-color photographs on every page show Earle and her grandchildren on beaches and in aquarium settings holding kelp, touching sea creatures, and thoroughly enjoying themselves. Her professional activities aboard NOAA research vessels-diving in submersibles and scuba gear-are documented as is her role as National Geographic's explorer-in-residence. The last page provides nine tips for readers who want to be deep-sea explorers with the final tip, "Get Wet." While there's not a lot of substance, this is an engaging family photo album with narration.-Frances E. Millhouser, Chantilly Regional Library, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
