Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
Young children are naturally curious about the differences between them and other children that they encounter. This series presents a very healthy explanation of why children might be in wheelchairs and how children in wheelchairs are like the other children in their class. There is no discomfort level in talking about the limitations of these children. Instead, the reader learns that children in wheelchairs go to the library, go to summer camp, and participate in all kinds of regular activities. The illustrations are photographs of multicultural children using ramps, visiting physical therapists, and going to doctor visits. This series, called "Understanding Differences" includes four titles dealing with children who are blind, deaf, wear leg braces, and use wheelchairs. Short, manageable repeated text, generous font size, and clear illustrations make these titles the perfect teaching tools for the early reader. Capstone does an admirable job of providing additional resources, including their FactHound website, which pre-selects appropriate websites for further research, based on the Book ID that the reader types in. A glossary, an index, and reading suggestions make this an excellent choice for elementary library and classroom collections. The repetition of words and phrases helps young readers to learn new words, and subject specific words introduce vocabulary. The series has been keyed to the National Social Studies and Health curriculums. Reviewer: Joyce Rice
