This is a little bit of a different review, because there are so many different books with varying age range and interests. I will talk a little bit about each book.
The Treasure of Snake Island
This is a sweet story that is appropriate for preschool through early elementary. A group of friends are sailing along with the hopes of finding treasure. They come to Snake Island and find a great treasure indeed. The story leads the young reader to understand that books are wonderful and important.
Oh Susannah: It's in the Bag
This story is all about feelings and deciding to deal with a difficult day or hide all of your problems away. Of course, if you hide all of your problems, things tend to get bigger and bigger until you lose control of them. This book is an early reader that is intended for elementary students.
If You Were Me and Lived In...Scotland
This is a fun geography book for the early elementary years. The book is written in a conversational and informative style. The story tells lots of interesting facts about Scotland. The book is filled with colorful pictures and the print is large. This is a nicely published book that is easy to read, and the information is given in small segments, so it is easier to retain the information that is presented. This book alone has won five awards.
If You Were Me and Lived in...Portugal
This book is from the same series as the book about living in Scotland. It begins with a map of Portugal and has the capital marked. Its location is also shown on the globe. The book introduces just a little bit of the language that is spoken in Portugal and talks about what food you might like to eat and a little bit about the country's favorite sport.
All of these books are carefully created. The stories are pleasant and the illustrations are cute. The maps and graphs are clear. I like the moral content of the stories and the gentle way in which lessons are taught. My kids are a bit too old for these books, but they looked over them and thought that they would be enjoyable to younger children.
