Ruth (Berman) Strother is a veteran author and editor who has developed countless books for children in the areas of natural science, pet care, and biography, among others. Spanning the continent, Ruth was born in New York, grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and is now trying to warm up in Southern California, where she lives with her husband, daughter, and two Labs.From School Library Journal:
PreS-Gr 2These titles are perfect for budding scientists. As the facts are presented, youngsters are drawn into the vibrant, well-composed, full-color photographs on each page. Scattered questions throughout the texts pique readers interest by requiring them to think about what they are seeing. The short sentences focus on single concepts that are also illuminated by the pictures. While these titles are aimed at the youngest readers, they dont shy away from using scientific terms. Proper terminology flows naturally within the texts and is easy to understand. Tree frogs are ectotherms. Ectotherms need sunshine to heat their bodies. Brief glossaries help clarify these words. Outline maps showing where each animal can be found in North America and simple but colorful anatomical diagrams are appended. Hunt and Find pages reinforce what has been learned by sending children back to search for different topics. Welcome additions for beginning readers.Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
