Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Reviewed with Lynn Stone's Oceans.

Gr. 1-3. These titles in the new Biomes of North America series will give early elementary students clear introductions to basic science concepts. A few large print sentences appear on each page, opposite mostly crisp color photographs of landscapes, wildlife, and, in Oceans, underwater views as well as very simple maps that help readers identify regions. While describing the particulars of each biome, the clear, simple text offers useful definitions of terms such as prey, predator, migration, camouflage, and hibernation. Not all the challenging words are included in the appended glossaries; very few students, for example, will know what a ptarmigan is. But Stone does a fine job of making the subjects accessible by showing the logic behind the facts, as in this excerpt from Oceans: "Since plants need sunlight to make food, they live in fairly shallow water." Both titles conclude with a very short list of suggested reading. Solid nonfiction for new readers. Gillian Engberg
