Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jillian Kobelin
This Scholastic Reader showcases the underwater world of seahorses. Young readers can hone new reading skills with the basic, legible text while simultaneously learning facts about the life of this scaled sea creature. Key vocabulary words are scattered throughout the book, recalled in a glossary at the end. Throughout this educational book, the alternating placement of the text on each page adds an additional reading challenge. The text is partnered with bright, beautiful photographs of unique seahorses. Some are yellow; some speckled like a cheetah; others, a deep red or dark purple. This book could be a great resource for a report on marine life or for any child interested in oceanography. The back cover of the book provides a guide to its reading level (beginner), grade level (PreK-1), word count (244) and more to guide parents or librarians in finding a good fit for beginning readers.
