In simple, easy-to-understand language, this guide teaches children what oceans are and what kinds of animals and plants live there. A glossary and afterword provide readers with further fascinating details.
Award-winning author Cathryn Sill and her husband, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill, offer young readers an informative and entertaining first glimpse into ocean habitats.
Introduce your young students to habitats around the world with these beautifully illustrated, 48-page books by Cathryn and John Sill. Every two-page spread includes a full-page illustration of a habitat and some of the creatures who live there as well as a very short (4 lines or less) description of the habitat. The length of text is very appropriate for young ones with a shorter attention span, and the print is larger for younger readers. At the back of the book are resource pages. For every illustrated page in the book there is additional information for the parent/teacher to share or explain to the child. A glossary of new words, resources for further study, websites, and a book list are also found at the back of the book. ~ Donna
