Reviews

Gr 1-3-Distinctive color photographs on white backgrounds illustrate brief sound bites about eyes and ears and how animals use them. The text consists of introductory rhymes ("Eyes are for looking,/seeing, and staring./Eyes are for watching,/gazing, and glaring"), riddles ("He sleeps by day/and hunts by night./His loud `hoo hoo'/gives mice a fright"), and short explanations. There is no cohesive narrative. An attractive browsing volume for newly independent readers.-Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY MY FIRST FARM BOOK. 48p. photos. glossary. index. DK. 2000. Tr $16.95. ISBN 0-7894-5214-6. LC number unavailable. PreS-Gr 1-This concept book covers the usual farm animals and machinery, as well as a wide variety of crops from vegetables to cereals and tropical fruits to flowers. It concludes with pages on animal noises, farm colors, and counting. The color photography is quite good in most cases, though some pictures are dark or cluttered. Unfortunately, there is too much here to absorb in one sitting, and far too much of the content reflects its European origins. One illustration shows a John Deere tractor attached to a British plow that looks nothing like the ones used in this country, and youngsters familiar with American bison are likely to laugh at the photo of water buffalo labeled "buffalo herd." A marginal purchase.-Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
