PreS-Gr 2—These titles will encourage students to not only engage with the books but with the world around them as well. Stock photos accompany brief texts. Apples, Pumpkins, and Leaves consider concepts such as colors, shapes, and size. Harvests includes familiar crops—grapes and broccoli and more unusual ones, like canola and sorghum. Animals introduces topics such as adaptation, migration, and hibernation. Weather is the weakest of the lot, with no explanation of why seasonal changes occur. A simple glossary and index introduce the rudiments of nonfiction. Follow-up activities stress outdoor explorations, such as leaf gathering or animal observation, rather than research.
