Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Each entry in the "Welcome Books" series pictures in photographs and descriptions an occupation of a family member as seen through the eyes of a child. Books feature a "Contents" page, new word glossary, a selection of trade or series books on the topic, a Website about honey, and an index. Simple and mundane text, large font, one or two sentences per page, and plenty of white space support the reader and offer basic vocabulary. Here, Jake who looks to be a third grader tells about his Mom who wears a hood so bees don't sting her, and how they bottle the honey. Pictures show hands scraping the cells taken from the bee box, but it's difficult to know how they get the honey out of there and it ends up in a tidy pouring picture. Readers may wish to know more from one of the other sources in the book. People of various racial or ethnic backgrounds are pictured throughout the series and those in this book are Caucasian. There's enough information here to talk with young children about people who work with their hands making something. And they can read this book on their own. 2002, Children's Press,
