Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leila Toledo
Locations and types of buildings in which learning takes place along with the variety of skills that one can master are included in this easy to read photoessay. The diversity may surprise children. The schools featured range from those where children arrive on the yellow school bus to those where barefoot children walk miles to attend. Schools are not just for kids; the book notes that education is available for adults as well as children.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3--The attractive covers of these titles should interest young readers. Each book underscores the fact that while the physical features of the subject under discussion are often quite different, the goal of each institution is the same. Hill presents a brief history of libraries and includes examples from a small storefront library to the Lyndon Johnson Research Library. Schools discusses the many places in which learning takes place, ranging from a rural Ecuadorian school to Harvard University. Each page consists of about four sentences and a full-color photo. Wide margins and clear print add to the books' appeal. An additional feature in each title is the photo index that shows each picture, reduced to the size of a postage stamp, with a corresponding page number and sentence or two describing it. Informative nonfiction for beginning readers.--Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
