Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Erika Clark
What causes snowflakes to fall from very cold clouds, cold wind to blow so hard you cannot see in front of you, or billions and trillions of snowflakes to appear all at once? With clear, colorful photography and a descriptive text, the reader will automatically satisfy his or her curiosity about weather and natural surroundings. With weather words and definitions occasionally included in the text, the young reader can easily learn new vocabulary without noticing. Students will also find this style of text fun and eccentric in a positive way since comical questions and answers are provided in a way to engage the reader. Captions are also cleverly included in the photographs in order to give meaning or explanations without being too overwhelming. After reading the end letter, the reader will feel encouraged to continue his or her understanding of the world through books. "Whoosh! You are wind, with your arms spread wide. Spin into a tornado. Clap your hands. Click your tongue. You are hail. Pound your feet. Clap click clap! You're a thunderstorm..." Any student beginning to read will not resist the feeling of inclusion the author creates from the text, allowing learning to be fun and unconventional. Reviewer: Erika Clark
