Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
What kid is not interested in pirates? In this title from the Kingfisher Readers Level 4 "Read and Wonder" series, the author has used a favorite nonfiction topic as a launch pad for young readers ready to read on their own. Developed with the assistance of literacy experts, the text uses more sophisticated vocabulary and longer sentences to encourage beginning readers to stretch and strengthen their skills. With the use of captions, fact boxes and diagrams to flesh out the main text, kids learn loads of fun facts about pirates. For example, did you know that there were women pirates, such as Englishwoman Mary Read? Or that pirates have been around almost as long as people have sailed in ships, dating back to the Ancient Greeks? The book is richly illustrated with full-color art from various art archive or museum sources. Included at the back of the book is a glossary and subject index. Reviewer: Dianne Ochiltree
