This series is perfect for kids who have ever wondered where their socks come from or how bicycles are made. The origins of socks, bicycles, crayons, paper, glass housewares, and clothing are presented through large color photos, fast facts, and simple diagrams. Some pages include both text and pictures, while others only include a photo and a simple diagram. Most of the books are about 25 pages in length, making this series ideal for slightly more advanced readers in first and second grade. Another thing that makes these books slightly more advanced is the longer sentences, blocks of color behind the text instead of white space, page numbers, and a table of contents. These books are great for readers who are transitioning from reading with a caregiver to reading independently, but also make a great choice for bilingual group read-alouds. VERDICT A versatile choice for daycares, ECE classrooms, and public and school libraries.

This series explains how commodities (honey, jam, cheese, pickles, pizza, and bread) are made. The titles feature a clever combination of infographics, colorful fonts and accents, and photo glossaries. Del jardín al pepinillo (From Garden to Pickle) makes this series stand out: Basic gardening principles are woven into the pickle-making process, which will appeal to readers who want or have their own gardens at home. Each book offers opportunities to learn more by using the publisher’s online content, which creates further connections between child, book, and caregiver. VERDICT Children and caregivers will be motivated to try making some of these delicious foods at home. Fun, fascinating books that are ideal for browsing.
