"1. Genre: Informational Junior Book

2. Summary: This book is from a series by the Science of Living Things. It shows the process of a life cycle and gives examples of reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and humans, as well as the barriers that they all face.

3. Critique:
a)The best part about this book is the outline and organization.

b) Each section is outlined with several subheadings. It allows the reader to know what the subject of the paragraphs. Each of the photographs or illustrations have captions that clearly explain the meaning or purpose of each one. The information is appropriate for young and older elmentary students. It is not too much or too difficult language or vocabulary for children. The book covers many topics and information of life cyles; it goes beyound the simple concepts of just a butterfly cycle.

c) In the chapter of "Many kinds of eggs," the subheadings show the information in the chapter which is the contents in an egg, and the purpose of laying eggs.

4. Curriculum Connection: I think students will enjoy reading this informational book. It has many illustrations, examples and topics. I would use this book for third through fifth grade students, when discussing life cycles. For the students, I would read aloud certain parts of the book, then have them finish reading and create a graphic organizer on a life cycle.

"Personal Reaction: I think this book is great! I liked this book because "What Is a Life Cycle" is very easy to understand while teaching students about life cycles of various animals. Everything is very clear and laid out well for student to understand something that may be difficult for students to understand in science.


Purpose & Use in the Classroom: I would use this book as a read aloud for a unit discussing life cycles in the 4th grade classroom. It would be best for the teacher to read certain subheadings aloud and have students read other subheadings they would like to know more about on their own. I would like to use this book in connection with a project where students had to draw out the life cycle of their favorite animal that is presented in the book, including descriptions. It would be great to have multiple copies of this book for the classroom so that students could get in groups and refer to the book when they needed to look up more information on their animal.


Other: This book is formatted really well which helps the readers understand and read this informational book more effectively. The book is formatted well because in each section of the book there are subheadings that tell readers the subject of the paragraph before they read them. Students can go back to the book on the shelf and easily find what they read before if they are trying to recall information from the book for any reason much easier because of these subheadings.

"Personal reaction
I liked this book. It was very informational, and the set up made it very easy to read! It would be a great book to put in the classroom. It is very easy to understand, something that may not happen as much with science.

read aloud to make a curricular connection
I would read this book within a science unit on life cycles, probably within fourth or fifth grade. This would be good for students to use as a reference for learning about animals life cycles and how every animal has a different life cycle and different process of growing up.

independent reading
This would be great for students who are around the age of 4th grade, who are interested in science or how things work. The information in this book is great for answering questions about life cycles, and this may interest many students who like science. It would also be good for any animal lover as well!

particular nonfiction conventions
This book is laid out very well, which makes it an easy read. There are many pictures of different animals, and text to read that is not too hard for these students. There are subheadings, which are beneficial for the reader because they will know what they are reading about before they start the paragraph, which would benefit most readers around the age of fourth grade.


Other as appropriate (e.g. comments about language, diverse perspectives)
This would be great for a project on life cycles in the classroom. Students can reference this book while creating a poster or powerpoint on their assigned animal. Students could also work in groups and make the project together, which could help them build social skills as well.
