“I see many things. This is a simple line but one of the most powerful pages within this text. The image on this page is that of a child with glasses. The authors intentional inclusion of a support allows students to potentially question what they notice different and start a conversation about the need for support with make life experiences better. Although it was not directly included, an adult reader might prompt this discussion with the reader. The text does a great job reinforcing many early learning skills such as shapes and colors. With this inclusion, the items are embedded within an existing context and not isolated content review. This can also help with building background knowledge for learners. This text is part of a 5-book series presenting early learners with information to build onto their existing knowledge about the senses. All five texts maintain a consistent format with components including diverse representation of the people, discussion questions (before, during, and after reading) to help early learners make meaning from the text, and information to guide use by non-educators including social emotional connections and guiding actions to use when reading the text. In addition, these texts have some pages with a repetitive format which allow the earliest readers to use the pictures and start to read the text. Reviewer Rating: 5” –Children’s Literature
