Series Made Simple

Step outside and what do you see? This series covers some of the most recognizable elements of the natural world. Throughout the series, full-page stunning photographs are overlaid with colorful text boxes, while simple repetitive sentences maintain the focus on a few key words. Each title includes a “Tools for Teachers” guide covering the literacy skills addressed in each book, science curriculum connections, and activities to do before and after introducing the topic. A visual dictionary called “Words to Know” concludes each volume, providing students with an opportunity to reinforce new vocabulary. VERDICT Teachers will value the curriculum guidance, and early readers will appreciate the immediacy of the content.
