Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
This is an excellent factual text for elementary school-aged children. It is carefully written and designed to help students consider what they already know about the planet earth while learning important and interesting information that goes beyond their own personal experiences and content knowledge. The text is well organized into five chapters with titles that clearly indicate what type of information will be shared, such as Layers of the Earth and Exploring the Surface. Within each chapter the author uses clear language with a conversational tone. Technical, content specific vocabulary is explained in the text by the use of highlighting as well as inset captions containing vocabulary definitions. The well written text of interesting and detailed factual information about the earth is supported and extended by wonderful illustrations, graphics, photographs, and important captions. In addition to the supportive text features on every page of this attractive text, there is a glossary, an index, a suggested reading list, and suggested websites on the last four pages of the text. This attractive and interesting book about the planet earth provides such a rich reading experience for students that they will be inspired to read the other titles in this wonderful six book "Fact Finders" series about the solar system and beyond.
