Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2These titles are perfect for budding scientists. As the facts are presented, youngsters are drawn into the vibrant, well-composed, full-color photographs on each page. Scattered questions throughout the texts pique readers interest by requiring them to think about what they are seeing. The short sentences focus on single concepts that are also illuminated by the pictures. While these titles are aimed at the youngest readers, they dont shy away from using scientific terms. Proper terminology flows naturally within the texts and is easy to understand. Tree frogs are ectotherms. Ectotherms need sunshine to heat their bodies. Brief glossaries help clarify these words. Outline maps showing where each animal can be found in North America and simple but colorful anatomical diagrams are appended. Hunt and Find pages reinforce what has been learned by sending children back to search for different topics. Welcome additions for beginning readers.Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
