Hot or Cold?

Webb, Barbara L. Hot or Cold?Vero Beach, Fla: Rourke Educational Media, 2013.

This story gives examples of places and weather that is hot or cold.  The illustrator provides a visual of a thermometer to help the reader tell whether it is hot or cold.

The author explains a simple concept and follows it by asking the reader a question.  The author's writing style is very organized and understandable.

The illustrations consist of high contrasted colors of different scenery, pictures of people with positive facial expressions, and a picture of a thermometer to match the "hot" or "cold" pictures.

I would highly recommend this to students of the ages 3 to 7 years old.  Students who live in Ohio can relate to the pictures of kids playing in the snow and swimming during the summer.
