My Review:

This book contains several editing errors that could have easily been fixed prior to publication. The pictures are the redeeming characteristic of this book as for the most part they are well chosen.

This is one of the picture books that has a photo with text underneath it instead of the text being incorporated on to the picture.

Snakes byTitle: Snakes

Author: Dan Jackson

My Review:

Super cool facts. Great pictures.

Unfortunately nearly every page has at least one grammatical or punctuation error on it.

Very simply things to fix. Definitely needed someone to read it before the author published it.

There is potential here but it fails short of what it could be due to the poor quality of the written text.

My Review:

Once again there is potential here but the execution needed more editing and polishing to make this a great book.

I’ve read several books by this author and was more forgiving with the first few. It would take just a few minute to have someone with some knowledge of proper grammar and punctuation to fix the errors in the text.

Much of the information contained in this book is interesting but a few facts are incorrect. Makes it hard to recommend this due to those errors.

Amazin Facts about astronautsTitle: Amazing Facts about Astronauts

Author: Dan Jackson

Amazon

 

My Review:

Another Dan Jackson book. This one contains facts about Astronauts. Clip art pictures with text beneath them. Some were actual photos and others were more cartoonish. There was a duplicate photo used near the end so the same picture was on 2 pages in a row.
There are some grammatical errors in this one but at least they are not on every page which is an improvement over the last book of his I read.
Would probably be enjoyed by preschool to young elementary aged children.
