Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
Modern pirates commit criminal activities at sea. Piracy is a problem that affects the international community. A contents page defines the scope of the information from "Criminals at Sea" to "The Future of Pirates." Vibrant, full-color images support the text. Sidebars throughout the text highlight factual information. A world map shows the major shipping routes, and defines the frequency of use in these routes with different colored lines. The language is clear and direct with charts, timelines, and diagrams to help readers practice content-area reading strategies. "Learning More" lists "Books, Websites, and Movies/Documentaries" that provide more information about piracy. A glossary defines relevant terms. An index provides easy navigation through the text. This book is part of the "Crabtree Chrome" series, an innovative new series designed for middle school and early high school reluctant readers, who read several levels below their grade level. All of the titles include high-interest, timely topics, with curriculum and core-subject applications. This series opens the world of reading for reluctant readers. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
