Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Erika Clark
For advanced readers, this text helps students learn important features such as a table of context, an index, captions, and subheadings. The text provides more higher-level vocabulary and detailed definitions on every page. Students will grasp an understanding about the animal food chain and a typical diet of different animals and insects. "Some backyard animals eat other animals. Animals that eat other animals are called carnivores. Dragonflies and many kinds of birds are carnivores, too. Cats are carnivores that sometimes hunt birds." Each page includes appropriate photography that portrays the meaning of the text. Students will be able to use photography and text features as visual cues to make personal connections and learn challenging vocabulary. Students gain an understanding of how busy bees help plants grow and make the sweet delicious honey humans use everyday. Therefore, this text will provoke young readers to make other connections to nonhuman inhabitants that live in their world, such as how other insects like slugs, ants, and earthworms mutually contribute to a healthy planet. This book is part of the "My World" series. Reviewer: Erika Clark
