Children's LiteratureLightning flashes and strikes the air or the ground. It makes a sound called thunder. Light moves faster than sound, so we see lightning before we hear thunder. Lightning can cause a fire if hits the ground and it is important to stay away from lighting. This Level One reader is part of the "Wonder Books" series designed to help young children learn to read while reading to learn. This is part of a new emphasis on nonfiction material in all levels of reading development. The text is very large and each page contains no more than two sentences, most pages just have one. A photograph illustrates each page of text. The photographs range from very straightforward to more offbeat. There are many dramatic photographs of lightning. However, the image quality is not consistent. Many of the photographs are adequate but not exceptional. A glossary of new words is included. 2003, The Child's World, Ages 4 to 7.
