Simple sentences and big clear photos of a variety of kids stirring, taping, digging, and measuring will help bolster the confidence of young folks. The children depicted model good motor skills, working posture, and concentration, and their big smiles upon completion communicate their genuine pride in their accomplishments. Clear design and beautiful photos, especially in Lemonade Stand and Garden, add to the appeal. An abundance of front and back matter will help adults use these titles with children to improve vocabulary, comprehension, and subject mastery. VERDICT Strong options for how-to collections.
