Sue Barraclough is a Heinemann-Raintree author.From Booklist:
PreS-K. The How Do Things Move? series, part of the Raintree Sprouts line of concept books, presents a fundamental aspect of physical science to the youngest readers. In spreads notable for their varied, colorful graphic design and sharp photos, this particular title invites children to consider the relative speeds of pairs of moving objects. In some scenarios, objects are identified as "fast" or "slow"; in others, readers are asked to decide for themselves: Is a rocket ship fast or slow? A turtle? The comparative nature of terms such as fast and slow is never stated outright, a situation that may confuse savvy readers who recognize that a steamroller may seem slow alongside a rocket but fast compared to, say, a snail. Still, most children will catch the drift of making observations of and inferences about phenomena in their world. Teachers wanting to introduce the basic features of informational texts will find the requisite elements here--a table of contents, a glossary, and an index. Jennifer Mattson
