El Picaflor (Hummingbird)

David M. Schwartz, Author, Dwight Kuhn, Photographer Gareth Stevens Publishing $22 (24p) ISBN 978-0-8368-2999-0
Gr 1-3-These three titles in an extensive series of very simple and easy-to-read nonfiction books offer an introduction to the world of natural science. Just as the translators have kept the language simple, the facts they present about the animals are only the most basic. One could not write a full report using this book, but students will encounter essential facts and amazing photographs that really communicate the details of each species. The glossary in the back can serve as a great vocabulary builder. Recommended for school and public libraries. Joel Bangilan, Houston P.L., TX
