Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Until recently, teachers of children that are non- or beginning readers had to improvise when teaching about aquatic creatures. This meant anything from finding and mounting their own pictures and relating facts to using books meant for older students, putting the text into simpler sentences. Now along comes the "Under the Sea" series with a large format, colorful underwater photographs and word count per book of 125 words or less. The texts are well crafted, with special words repeated for easy learning. The size and shape of these books with their colorful attractive covers make them appealing to teacher and student alike. Not only do they have a consulting editor, but an educational consultant, a member of the Southwest Marine/Aquatic Educator's Association. The subject of this title, the amazing whales, all have blow holes to breathe, blubber to keep them warm, strong tails to help swim and fins on their backs to help them balance and steer. The author describes their various sizes: as long as a jump rope for smaller whales while large whales can be the size of a large airplane. The picture of a breaching whale is spectacular. The book includes a simple glossary, a bibliography, a reference to FactHound.com, an age-appropriate and safe Internet site for further research, plus an index. 2005, Pebble Plus/Capstone Press, Ages 2 to 6.
