Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
How about this scenario? You are driving to your favorite beach or aquarium and a little voice comes from the back seat: "Are we there yet?" Instead of explaining about mileage, car speed, time, or geography, hand over this book. Young readers will get an introduction to the world's oceans, temperature range from icy to warm and tropical, as well as various ocean habitats and the creatures that live in and around them. The book's likely format includes colorful illustration, including pictures of children playing in the surf, something that fascinates very young or even non-readers. Ocean dwellers, from microscopic to blue whales, sea birds to mammals are included. Try this: before a visit to the ocean, brainstorm and list what readers may see, then afterwards, list everything they did see, and add some colorful drawings of their favorites. The book includes words to know and an age-appropriate index. Reviewer: Judy Crowder
