Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Wheatley
Kalman, well-known for nonfiction books, delivers another winner with the "Introducing Living Things" series. With colorful labeled photos and drawings, bolded content words in the text, and guided reading levels aimed at first and second grade, these books include excellent resources for younger readers. Complete with a "Contents" page, a "Words to Know" section, and an "Index" page, the books make it easy for beginning readers to locate information. A short review chapter about what living things need leads into a description of how plants are living things. Chapters about the types of plants, the parts of plants, the life cycle of a plant from seed to seed, and the many ways that plants grow are coupled with vivid photographs that explain the text. How plants help the environment and humans by providing oxygen, food, wood, and shelter completes the book. This is an excellent resource for any elementary student or classroom since it combines easy to read text with relevant information. Reviewer: Barbara Wheatley
