Booklist Review

Ages 4-7. From the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, here are two old standbys, recycled. In Gravity Branley talks about the gravitational forces exerted by the earth, moon, sun, and planets on objects in or on them. Although the text is the same, this edition has a revised design. Madden's original illustrations are redrawn with a greater use of color and some differences in layout. It looks a bit more sprightly, but is basically unchanged. Recommended for collections where the original is worn from frequent use. As well as having minor alterations to the text, Snow has a completely different look. Keller's fresh, full-color illustrations more appropriately depict younger children than did the earlier drawings. The text describes snow, its role in the ecology, and a couple of simple experiments for preschool and primary classrooms. The typeface is larger, a welcome change for young readers. This new edition sports a cheerful, lively look that adds immeasurably to the book's appeal. CP.


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2 In this revision of the 1963 edition, Branley describes snowits characteristics, its usefulness to plants and animals, and the hazards it can cause. As the simple, direct text explains, the usefulness of snow far outweighs the disadvantages. This theme is carried out in Keller's charming full-color watercolor and ink illustrations that show children playing in, exploring, and discovering the marvels of snow. There are only minor variations in the text since the first edition. The major difference is in the all-new illustrations, which brighten and enliven the text. Pamela K.
