Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
These days with the divorce rate over 50 percent in the United States, it has become a little more difficult to define what a family is. This early reader presents a small family as contrasted with a large family both of which represent different ethnic groups. With multiple births becoming more common, readers are introduced to twins, triplets and even quadruplets. Some kids are adopted, while others have parents who are divorced. In some cases, they spend part of their year with each of their parents. Unlike many readers of this type, the vocabulary words are listed on the opening page, and the closing page includes several notes to adults about the content and focus of the book and a suggested activity, which is in addition to the related activities presented on prior pages. Simple declarative sentences on crisp white pages accompanied by photographs of children from a variety of ethnic backgrounds make this an attractive book. It is a level "E" book in the "My World" series. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-K—The first book reflects changes in the growth of a child through photos and brief text, from one day to weeks to months, up to five years of age, e.g., "I am 8 months old. I am crawling now. I have baby teeth" Additional ideas for an adult are included to help teach the concept of change. Family talks about twins, triplets, quadruplets, adopted children, grandparents, divorced parents, and stepparents. A variety of typical family structures is introduced in photos and text. Backyard Community is the best of the lot as it makes children aware of the living and nonliving around them, such as animals and insects, soil, sunlight, rocks, etc. Different animals that might live there are discussed. The other two books are functional, if a bit dull. All three books are very easy to read and have clear photos that support the texts. Marginal purchases, where needed.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX
