Slip and Slide (Spyglass Books, Earth Science)

by Jennifer Waters

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The attractive and informative books in the "Spyglass Books" series that focuses on life science, earth science, and physical science follow a similar format. They open with a table of contents page and then move right into the subject. Each chapter or section features a heading in large type; words that are defined in the glossary are printed in bold. The text consists of mostly declarative sentences. For example, "Snowshoes help keep your feet from sinking into deep snow." The photographs are all labeled and appropriate to the content. The text is simple, since these books are aimed at readers in grades 1 and 2. At the end of the text there is an experiment or activity. In this book, kids are asked to imagine and write about how they would have gotten around in the past before snowmobiles were invented. The bolded words are defined; there is a resource list with a few references, which are reasonably current; references to a web site followed by an index and brief introduction to the author. 2002, Compass Point Books,
