Celebrating Florida by Mario Dane Bauer-ADVISABLE

Bauer, Marion Dane. Ill. By C.B. Canga. Celebrating Florida. Pgs. 31. Sandpiper, 2013. $3.99. EARLY READER.

Did you know that more than 80 million people visit Florida every year or that Florida is the only place in the world where crocodiles and alligators coexist in the same place? This book covers these facts and more as they celebrate Florida. The text itself is harder than a level 3 reader, but the information provided is well-laid out and interesting to read. The book is informative and helpful. Included are a quick facts page, dates in history, activities, and a glossary. Overall, a great non-fiction for more independent readers interested in learning about Florida. EL - ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Jessica Moody, Library Media Specialist, Olympus Jr. High.
