Children's Literature
A sandboX and its contents may be quite familiar, but new to kids is information that eXplains how sand is created, what it looks like, and its uses. That is the subject of this early reader. However, the teXt does not read as well as it should. The page showing sand being used to build roads states "Sand used in building roads everywhere." Perhaps "Sand is used in building roads everywhere" would have been grammatically better, but I doubt that all roads have a sand base. Kids do learn that sand comes in many colors and that it is created by rocks breaking on the shore. Since sand is also created in other ways, e.g. through wind forces, it might have been better to state that "one way sand is created is by rocks breaking on the shore." A word list and information about the author and illustrator wrap up the book. Level B in the "Rookie Reader" series. 2000, Grolier, $18.00 and $4.95. Ages 5 to 6.
