Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Living things—plants and animals—need water. They may get their water differently as shown in the full page, color photographs. A giraffe with legs splayed laps up water from a pond or river, while a plant takes water through its root system. What many young readers may not realize is that water is more prevalent than land on the planet Earth. A picture of an ocean is illustrative, but showing our planet from space would probably make the point clearer. Water can be found in various forms or states—solid, liquid, and gas—these forms and the water cycle are clearly explained. The closing pages contain a glossary, two additional books to read, and a reference to FactHound to learn more at various Internet sites. There is an index, information useful to reading teachers, and another note at the front of the book that states, "The Nature Basics set supports National Science Standards related to earth and life science." Excellent photographs and illustrations and a clear writing style make this an attractive early reader. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
