Booklist Review

Gr. 1^-2. The Rookie Read-about Science series presents a wide variety of topics in a format that is appealing and appropriate for beginning readers. Skimming the book, youngsters will immediately feel comfortable with the small size, large type, and numerous color photos. The nature-oriented topics are generally of interest, too, especially the many titles on animals and insects. In Our Living Forests, characteristics of different types of forests are discussed. A special effort is made to show the relationship between climate and the types of trees and other plant life that grow in a specific forest, such as a rain forest. Other topics include how a tree changes through the seasons, animals that make their homes in forests, and threats to a forest's survival. Snail's Pace discusses the unusual features of the snail, including a description of why the snail moves so slowly and the differences between land and water snails. Slugs, the snail's cousin (and gardeners' enemy), are also briefly discussed. At the end of each book is a section of "Words You Know," which highlights important vocabulary words described in the text. This section could be used to review important concepts or as an introduction to the subject. Lauren Peterson
