Library Media Connection

Each book in this series describes a particular commodity or service and explains how it makes its way into consumers’ homes. Introductory chapters provide simple explanations and background information on each subject, and later chapters describe how the commodities and services are produced and distributed. The text is accurate, concise, and appropriate for the intended audience. Large, colorful photographs on every page add interest and help clarify the text. Those teaching beginning dictionary skills would appreciate a more conventional approach to pronunciation in the glossary. Young readers will enjoy using these attractive, informative books.
