Praised by Jacques Cousteau, this book, illustrated and written by a 16 year-old, is a classic introduction to the marine habitat. This 1994 alphabet and alliteration book continues to be a favorite of kids, parents, and teachers everywhere-it is truly an exceptional swim through an alphabet of sea creatures. Each page highlights a selected species with a full-color illustration and a paragraph of fascinating facts, surrounded by a frame full of extra creatures and vocabulary. It reaches a large age range because the large text is for young readers, while smaller text is for you or more advanced children. Kristin Joy Pratt (A Walk in the Rainforest) once again successfully inspires a generation of children about one of our planet’s most precious and fragile realms. A 48-page teacher’s guide (sold separately) is a valuable educator’s companion.
A thoughtful collection of lesson plans is available as a teacher?s companion to A Swim Through the Sea. Written by master teachers Bruce and Carol Malnor, this 48-page Teacher?s Guide integrates science and character education for the classroom or home school teacher. It includes brain compatible lessons, mind mapping suggestions, and benchmark standards.Please note: The board book contains a greatly simplified version of the text.
