Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanne Javid
How are owls and raccoons alike? They both are nocturnal animals. This means they are awake at night and asleep in the daytime. Readers will find out about the habits of nocturnal and diurnal animals (animals active during the day) in this colorful and appealing guided non-fiction reader. This book is part of the "My World" series of sixty-four books designed for young children. The books in this series are written in eight guided reading levels A-H, as indicated by the color codes on the colorful and glossy covers. Young readers will enjoy this fifteen-page book with colorful child-friendly photos on white backgrounds. As part of Level E, this emergent level reader has a wide range of high frequency words and makes use of simple two-syllable words with two-to-six lines of large and clear print per page. A "Words to Know" page prominently displays illustrated words. The last page of "Notes for Adult" lists objectives, questions to ask before and after readings and curriculum extensions. The publisher offers a valuable and resourceful website for educators. Downloadable assessment guides and rubrics, goals and objectives, planning timetables, vocabulary charts, and teacher's guide are available. Additionally, curriculum correlation to standards and requirements for each U.S. state and Canadian province, as well as the U.K and Australia is made available. Teachers can also take advantage of supplemental materials and blackline masters. Overview and scope of lesson plan activities are also provided. Nine graphic organizers used to facilitate content-area instruction, reading comprehension, writing, and note-taking skills are available as a download. The publisher generously offers a free downloadable eBook to visitors as well. Author Kalman has authored over eight hundred curriculum-based books. An audio visit with Kalman is available on the publisher's website. Reviewer: Suzanne Javid
