Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
The Earth is a big place, and each of the seven continents has unique people, places and animals that make it special. Author Dell introduces young readers to the wonderful world they live in with a map of the globe and geography-related definitions, such as equator, supercontinent, hemisphere, longitude lines and latitude lines. The rest of the book is made up of pairs of two-page spreads dedicated to showcasing some of the most interesting facts about each of the seven continents, except for Antarctica, which is covered in a single two-page spread. Whether they like monuments such as the Taj Mahal, natural wonders such as the Grand Canyon, or fascinating wildlife such as the African elephant, students will find plenty of information to capture their interest. An editor’s note to parents, teachers and librarians indicates the book is designed to provide an early introduction to reference materials. All books in the series include a table of contents and a page with additional resources. The publisher’s targeted audience, students in preschool to second grade, seems ambitious, given the vocabulary and level of comprehension required to make a sensible whole from so many unique entries. For example, the entry for longitude lines includes this definition: “the prime meridian is the longitude line that is the starting point for measuring east and west.” Children may enjoy browsing through the book, but those accustomed to a narrative will need guidance to understand how to use it as a reference book. Reviewer: Keri Collins Lewis AGERANGE: Ages 4 to 8.
