Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This early reader answers the question, "What do computers do?" in the most general terms. Young readers learn that computers are used to hold and sort information, to send letters from one computer to another, and to buy things without leaving home. People use computers at work, at school, in stores, in cars, in microwave ovens, in video games, to help fly airplanes, to draw pictures, and to do dangerous work. Each page has two or three short sentences and the text is set in a clean and extremely legible typeface. The photographs are colorful and bright, showing many children in the scenes with people representing many different racial groups. The book lists the early-intervention level as 14. The last page is a "Words to Know" section. This book is part of the "Yellow Umbrella Books for Early Readers" series which includes Let's Look at Rocks, Make it Move, Snakes and Lizards, Everything is Matter, and Eating Well among others. 2004, Yellow Umbrella Books for Early Readers/ Capstone Press, Ages 3 to 5.
