Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Seven individual early readers have been brought together to create this compilation. Among them is Water that describes an interesting substance. It takes on a variety of forms that we adults know, but young kid, may not really be aware of. Water can take another form when it gets cold. Instead of rain, we can have snow. Water can also freeze solid to form ice. With heat, it converts back to liquid and even vapor or steam. Eventually, the water absorbed in the air will come down again—most likely as rain. So, the cycle is complete, and the lesson easily learned. It is often difficult to find interesting informational books that beginning readers can actually read. Stars fits the criteria. The book answers many of the questions that children have about stars. It includes specific facts on the sun, the make up of a star, what happens during an eclipse, and a historical look at how stars helped early navigators. All of these interesting facts are found in a book with colorful and exciting illustrations that add important clues for the beginning reader as he or she begins to gain meaning from text. Amazing amphibians leap from the pages of Frogs. Kids see them climb trees, catch flies, and grow legs. This easy reader is easy to look at, too. With full-page cut paper frogs in every color, size and shape, the pictures jump out at you. Help preschoolers and early readers learn about the life cycle of butterflies. The book of the same name includes interesting facts such as size, what butterflies eat, and how to distinguish them from moths. Sharks opens with a bit of sensationalism. A shark attacks a surfer on a surfboard. Why? Because from below he looks likethe shark's favorite food—a seal. The text then notes that these attacks are rare, but by then, in my opinion, the damage is done—kids will remember that visualization and text. The rest of the book, however, is filled with facts about a variety of sharks—their sizes, prey, coloration, and in some cases, very unusual appearance (hammerhead, leopard and saw sharks). Two other books discuss spiders, why they spin webs and how they capture their prey and turtles, those amazing creatures that can live on land or in the water and that have a life span almost as great a humans. Good facts and smooth writing will assist those who truly enjoy nonfiction; and even without an index, young report writers could glean enough information from these entries in the "All Aboard Reading" series to assist in report writing. At Level 1, (Preschool to Grade 1), the book features a few lines of text per page, large type, easy words, repetition and pictures with visual clues. 2003, Grosset & Dunlap/Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers, Ages 4 to 7.
