PreS-Gr 1 A mix of minimal texts and rebuses offers beginning readers a quick look at a variety of common invertebrates. Each title is prefaced with a picture glossary displaying more than a half dozen small photos alongside the simple words they represent, e.g., a color shot of a patch of grass represents the word "grass"; a photo of a twig stands for "branch," etc. In each of a series of spreads, a short sentence interspersed with one or two rebuses alternates with a sharp color close-up of one or more of the subject animals. The majority of the titles simply describe where the creature can be found, often directing readers' attention to the accompanying photo ("See the."). Ants emphasizes the insects' relative strength while Grasshoppers outlines the animals' varied diet. Although the texts are clearly written, the amount of information they offer is slight; they seem designed more as reading exercises than introductions. Several of the photos in Worms may confuse readers as they depict caterpillars, not actual worms. It would be helpful if the different species depicted were at least identified by common names in captions. While the books' colorful, uncluttered format and the use of rebuses will attract browsers, the lack of information will ultimately disappoint youngsters intrigued by these animals.
