SLJ Review of Fact-o-Graphics!
Using colorful illustrations and inset photos, this series presents basic facts for early readers. A section on the five senses, for example, uses small photos of foods to highlight the five categories of taste. A general statement introduces each spread’s topic and text boxes provide additional information. Everything from seasons to microhabitats is shown, labeled, and explained. Readers learn that a baobab tree holds enough water for 650 baths or that Reykjavik has the longest day of any town on Earth. A table of contents and index make it easy to locate specific points of interest. Vocabulary words appear in bold print and are defined in the glossary. Each book also includes a section on extremes or record breakers, like the largest human feet or a tree that weighs as much as 15 African elephants. VERDICT Chunked text and abundant visuals make this series accessible to early readers.
