Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
05/01/2014
K-Gr 2—These titles are geared to those without much previous knowledge on the subjects; the information is basic but engaging. Each book includes fact bubbles and new words defined on the page, as well as in a picture glossary at the back. A page of picture puzzles highlighting details from the text makes the reading more interactive. Several jokes are printed in Koalas and Plant to Seed, making them especially fun. These two titles also include photographs that are bright and detailed, clearly illustrating the ideas in the texts. George Washington offers a mix of images of period paintings and photographs (including one of false teeth that could have been Washington's). The time line is another useful nonfiction tool for independent readers. While Koalas will likely have the most browsing appeal, all three titles will be useful for first reports and are good additions to beginning-reader collections.—Laura Stanfield, Campbell County Public Library, Ft. Thomas, KY
From the Publisher
"Through a fun and simple lens that’s perfect for the new, curious reader, this title celebrates a plant’s special place in the world." —Booklist
Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
Growing plants from seeds is a common procedure in early elementary classrooms. This beginner’s guide, intended for those just starting to read independently, is a good tool for both the teacher (or parent) and child. The first chapter describes what plants are and how they are used. Other chapters describe the parts of plants, how they grow, bloom, make seeds, as well as information on pollen and some interesting facts about plants. Some pages contain riddles and an explanation of words that may be unfamiliar to the reader. Beautiful, clear, color photos directly related to the text are found on every page. The procedure for growing a lima bean plant from a seed is clearly explained and the last chapter contains a quiz. A photo glossary is also included. As part of the series “National Geographic Readers,” this excellent title suggests that the other books in the series are worth investigating. Purchase is recommended. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth; Ages 4 to 6.
