Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Children who are learning to read can learn about their world with the "Lets-Read-And-Find-Out Science" series. The series is well conceived such that the developmental reading and interest level are matched. Many outstanding nonfiction writers and illustrators are contributing to the series. Stage 2 for ages five to nine handles meatier issues with more complicated ideas and vocabulary like those found in Berger's Oil Spill! Kids will get a lot of general information about oil spills, clean up and the impact on marine life, and will get specifics about one of the worst in recent history-the Exxon Valdez oil spill.
