Children's Literature - Kris SauerGot a youngster interested in soldiers, planes and tanks but who is struggling to read? This book on the U.S. Marine Corps might be just the ticket. Simple vocabulary, short sentences and large, full-color photographs help below-level readers access this nonfiction book on the jobs, people, and machinery used by these specially trained soldiers in our nation's Armed Services. Part of the "Pebble Plus" series on the United States' military branches, the series supports National Science Education Standards K-4: Science and Technology. It also supports the National Council for the Social Studies "Science, Technology and Society" standard. As with all good nonfiction books, this one includes a glossary to help early readers scaffold subject-specific vocabulary, a table of contents, index, bibliography and Internet sites sections. From F/A-18 airplanes to Assault Amphibian Vehicles (AAV) and Sea Knight helicopters, this book helps students at the emergent reading level (kindergarten to first grade) learn more about the mission of the United States Marine Corps and the brave men and women who carry it out.
