Children's Literature - Katie DeWald
Baby animals steal the show in this guided reading level B volume of the "All about Baby Animals" series. The vivid, lifelike pictures serve a dual purpose in encouraging new readers to keep the pages turning; the pictures support understanding of the text and foster interest in the text. This beginning reader book has characteristics more common to books with higher reading levels: a table of contents, a picture glossary, an index, a section of related web sites, and a section listing related books. The picture glossary is conveniently located before the story, allowing readers to become familiar with new words before they encounter them in the text. The text follows a predictable pattern, for example: "A baby hugs at the zoo" and "A baby walks at the zoo." Four predictable sentences are each repeated one time in an unpredictable order, and each time the text appears with an appropriate and unique picture of a baby zoo animal. The book begins with "What is new at the zoo?" and concludes with "A baby grows up at the zoo." Young readers and their teachers and parents will appreciate the accessible yet sophisticated elements of this book for beginning readers while being captivated by the familiar zoo animals.
