Readers benefit from full-page photographs, simple sentence structure, repetition, and comprehension questions, as well as labeled diagrams and picture glossaries for vocabulary review. Imagery is easy to identify and is evenly interspersed with straightforward text and labeling, making these books perfect for a kindergarten audience.
