School Library Journal (11/01/13)
Full Text Reviews:
School Library Journal - 11/01/2013 K-Gr 3—In this uneven set, there are no more than 11 sentences per page, which are placed opposite full-page photographs and graphics. Glossary words are highlighted in blue and defined in the back matter. For their usability and time liness, Research, Parts of a Book, and Online are the standouts. Research tells students that, "Research is about asking questions. What do you want to know?" This volume would be a great resource for a classroom unit. Parts of a Book introduces students to nonfiction book elements, from the table of contents to the index. Online covers Internet passwords, cyberbullying, and more. The rest of the titles can be repetitive and sometimes bland. The images, by and large, are clear and colorful and correspond to the texts. Educators should buy individual volumes as needed. - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
