Children's Literature - Kathy Leggett
Various types of whales, both large and small, swim across the pages in this "We Read Phonics, Level 3" book that describesone of the planet's most fascinating creatures. The detailed life-like photographs combine with soft illustrations to take readers on a captivating underwater journey across the globe. Each illustration is accompanied by one line of text detailing an interesting fact that is formatted using large font and expanded spacing. Fun information, including the fact that a whale can nap while it swims and that a baby whale is the same size as a bus, entice even the most reluctant readers to turn the pages to see what comes next. This ideal book for the developing reader who wants to read independently may still require a little adult support. A special feature of this series is the guide for parents that gives simple step-by-step instructions explaining how to interact with the story and involve the reader in ways that will build phonics and sight word skills. The activities require no supplies other than the book, but each encourages young readers to think about letters and sounds and how they work in words. In the early stages of reading development, placing the right books in the hands of the reader at the right time is often the key to success and growth. This combination, along with a parent interaction guide to provide just the right support, offers an ideal situation for the emerging reader. This series is sure to make its way into classrooms and reading programs everywhere. Reviewer: Kathy Leggett
