Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
There are times when we have to choose between writing an e-mail or a letter. This text provides information about how to make that decision and how to go about writing the message. The first part of the book tells about the differences between formal and friendly letters and then gives an assignment or exercise concerning those letters. There is a description of a formal letter and the exercise is to begin writing the letter. This continues through the writing of both a friendly and a formal letter. Examples are shown on one page and the exercise is on the opposite page. The second part of the text contains information about e-mails. Illustrations with labels show the parts of an e-mail as it appears on the computer. Internet safety is discussed. The last page shows how to address an envelope and how to send an e-mail. There are short writing tips inserted throughout the text such as the suggestion to ask questions in a friendly letter because it shows interest in the reader. The illustrations and photographs are entertaining and helpful. A glossary, bibliography, Internet sites, and an index are included in this "First Facts: You Can Write" series. This is a brief but useful reference book that could be read to children, or young readers could read it independently. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—This collection instructs readers on how to use the written word in a variety of often-assigned formats. Multi-hued with plenty of color photos, varying font size, "Fast Fact" text boxes, and writing tips, the books will capture the interest of burgeoning writers. Nearly every spread contains an entertaining exercise. For example, Stories features a close-up photo of a turtle's shell and asks readers to imagine "what if a turtle woke up and its shell was missing?" Short sentences and direct language make the titles motivational without being overwhelming. A link in each volume connects readers to an online list where they can access relevant websites chosen and approved by the publisher. Overall, an interesting, interactive introduction to written communication.
