Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Laura Backman
These colors are found in nature, in man-made things, and are metals that can be melted or shaped. What are they? Silver and Gold! With eye-catching photographs, energetic designs, and engaging text and format, young readers are sure to be captivated. The vivid language and dynamic design will keep pages turning and the book's big, sturdy design allows for shared reading. This nonfiction title, part of the "Lightening Bolt Books" Series, is robust with information and strongly connects to early childhood curriculum. Using text that supports beginning and emergent readers, children will learn that silver and gold are all around them and are even used in colorful language. In addition to nonfiction book features such as a table of contents, captions, glossary, and an index, this title contains fun facts and back matter, including a list for further reading and website links for student activities related to the topic. This title brings silver and gold to life and inspires children to find their favorite color all around them. Reviewer: Laura Backman
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—These bold and busy titles discuss where the colors occur in nature, describe their various shades, and discuss the meaning behind popular sayings or "fun facts" about them. Well suited to independent reading, with simple sentence structure and boxed facts that elaborate upon the photos, the books will inform and engage readers. Questions in the text ("Sometimes people say that they are feeling blue. What does this mean?") will promote further investigation. Each page in the first chapter features an item of the highlighted color plus an additional fact (e.g., "A rose makes a beautiful gift for someone you love. Roses are often dark red"). A second chapter presents shades of the color. Surprisingly, of Blue and Red, only Blue refers to the fact that primary colors blend to create other colors. These are suitable choices for libraries and classrooms, although the alternation of cut-out and full-page photography, both in bright, patterned frames, lacks the impact of the illustrations in the "A+ Books: Colors" series (Capstone).—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services Plano ISD, TX
