Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Treadway M.Ed
This read-aloud is one of several in a series, "Life around the World," which features transportation methods in various countries. Lovely photography accompanies simple text with repetitive vocabulary to aid early readers and for small group discussion. It contains the basic parts of a reference book, such as a table of contents, glossary, and index. In addition, adults can help children "read more" and explore "suggested internet sites." All sections are labeled by the same large navy blue font. There is a small, plain world map that corresponds with every location: labeled continents are green, and the appropriate one is highlighted in purple. The actual country name is in orange marked with a prominent yellow dot. The book ends with, "How will you travel today?" A consistent format with colorful photographs fosters comprehension. The series introduces general concepts in social studies (culture, geography, and economics) that should meet curriculum standards and facilitate integration of subjects. Reviewer: Susan Treadway, M.Ed
