Children's LiteratureIn the ever-expanding search for specificity, publishers are churning out more and more nonfiction books with very limited content. This title, from the "Welcome Books" series, is intended for pre-school audiences. The problem arises when the information presented may not be new to most toddlers and not entertaining enough to hold their attention. The book is very short at just 24 pages, which includes the table of contents, glossary and index. This leaves just 13 sentences worth of information to impart. It begins with "I have a nose," and then progresses to nostrils and that your nose smells things. While this is a perfectly serviceable book, it is short and rather expensive to cover a single topic. The full-page photographs of kids using their noses are nice, but ordinary. Unless you are building a very large and specific preschool collection, you would probably be better served with a book that covers all five senses, or at least more than this one. 2004, Children's Press, Ages 3 to 5.
