Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Carroll Roberts
It is ironic that a how-to book about writing clear, well-organized reports is so poorly organized and difficult to follow. Like the other books in this "How to Write" series, the design elements overwhelm the text with so many sidebars in so many different colors, the reader does not know where to look first. The information is presented in a hodge-podge of little snippets rather than a clear progression of instructions and ideas. Too bad no one seems to have mentioned to the editors of this series that when designing instructional books for young readers, less really can be more. Back matter includes a glossary, an index, and notes for parents and teachers. Reviewer: Barbara Carroll Roberts
