Part of the ABDO Kids Sharks series, Basking Sharks provides very basic information about basking sharks.

These large format books are very popular with my beginning readers (PreK-1). Two to three sentences per page offer simple facts and the opposite page presents an attention grabbing photograph. I sometimes use them to teach non-fiction text features to lower grades. They have a table of contents, glossary, headings, and an index. Also included is an access code for for crafts, games, videos, and more.

My 8 year old son recently borrowed this book from his school library. He is currently in the 2nd grade.

This book has 1-2 easy text sentences per page, giving brief information on basking sharks. Information like feeding, how they got their name, and their pups. There are also colorful photographs that go with the information given.

My son needed no help with reading or understanding the information given in this book.
