Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
What is a mountain? It is a land form that usually rises toward the sky and is taller than the surrounding land. There are mountains in the ocean which we see as islands, and active volcanoes are at the tops of some mountains. Some mountains have pointed tops, while others have rounded tops. Some mountains are rocky, while others have snow at their tip. Animals and plants live and grow on mountains. People live on mountains and climbing them is a favorite pastime for many hikers. Anderson asks young readers, "Would you like to explore a mountain?" There are many fun things to do on a mountain. A rain shadow is the area on one side of a mountain that usually gets very little rain. This book includes a list of facts that run the gamut from how mountains are formed to the world's highest mountain (Everest). Young naturalists will enjoy Mountains; it is a delightful adventure that allows children to explore a world which unfolds before their very eyes through wonderful photographs and vivid descriptions. Mountains takes children on a visual journey through mountains around the world and is recommended for home and school libraries. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
