Library Media Connection

Each book in this Community Connections set describes how a particular type of structure is built. Introductory chapters provide brief descriptions of each structure and short explanations of their functions and uses; succeeding chapters describe the planning, construction, and components of the structures. The text is accurate, concise, and appropriate for the intended audience. Large, colorful photographs on every page add interest and clarity to the text. Each book contains an index, a “Find Out More” section containing short lists of books and websites, and a glossary. As in the other books in the Community Connections series, the pronunciations in the glossary are unconventional and sometimes misleading. Despite that drawback, this attractive and informative set would be a valuable addition to a school library.

Recommended.

Author: Vicky Franchino

Vicky Franchino has always liked to learn about people who have made a difference in the world. Before writing this book she knew very little about Roberto Clemente, but she now understands why people still remember and honor him more than 30 years after his death. She hopes Clemente‘s story will help to inspire others to use their talents and time to make the world a better place. Vicky is the author of a number of other nonfiction books for children, and lives with her husband and their three daughters in Wisconsin.
