Ecosystems: Oceans by Greg Reid
Every once in awhile I like to find a non-fiction book that explores an area of the world. One of my favorite places to visit (no matter which coast I am on) is the ocean. I want to share my fond memories with my students. I also want to help them squelch any fears they may have based on movies and/or books.
Oceans offers the reader an in-depth look at oceans around the world. The text allows the reader to feel as if they were actually visiting that particular location. What I also liked about the book is that the author provides the viewer with a list of websites that students, caregivers, and teachers can use to extend the information that is provided.
