Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3^-5. The typeface is large, the color photographs are numerous, and the writing style, for the most part, is clear. Yet children will probably still need adult help to understand the Dewey decimal system. It really needs to be taught through example, and although Fowler does use several kinds of books as examples, including one on magic, something is lost on the written page. Once in a while, the book is confusing or incorrect: "Sometimes [a spine label] shows the letter "J" if it is an adult book that is kept in the children's section." An adjunct to learning the Dewey decimal system but not a book that can do the job on its own. --Ilene Cooper"
