Nonfiction Monday: Our Four Seasons series by Sheila Anderson, reviewed by Yoda
Why yes, yes we are!
Not so much, thanks anyway.
Whatever season you are ready for, these books are a nice way to begin it, whether read aloud to a class, or sitting on the sofa with your little one. Simple vocabulary and fun phrases ("splooshy, squishy mud") will have your young readers coming back to read them again on their own. Parts of the text almost read like poems, with onomotopoeia and forms like concrete poems abounding. Great pictures, glossaries, and mini-articles (like "Why Do Leaves Change Color" in the fall version) add to the interest. A great addition to library or classroom. Excuse me now, while I go make order cards for the other two...
