Twin Text: If You Were a Penguin by Wendell and Florence Minor @ 2009

Rational:
I chose the fiction text, If You Were a Penguin to accompany the non-fiction text Oceans because of its close connections to penguins and factual information that is provided to the students. Both books include graphics and pictures that allow for interpretation and word solving by ELL students as well as primary students. The storyline in the fiction book includes bits of factual information such as habitat, diet, and...more

Picture book #3 Oceans: Dolphins, sharks, penguins, and more

1. Twin text: All the Water in the World by George Ella Lyon and Katherine Tillotson, @2011.

2. The reason I chose this twin text is because it talks a little bit of how water goes through the water cycle, and that every living creature on Earth needs it. The words are different sizes, and some pictures are sideways, in which case you must turn the book to the side to read the text, which children enjoy seeing. The drawings within the bo...more

This was a nice fit for my Kindergarten age daughter. Maybe a little above her level, but I generally like that. I would say it's probably a bit too basic for the recommended 3rd to 7th grade on Amazon. Instead of reading it through, I let her and her little brother flip through and pick what pages they wanted to do. We ended up getting through the whole book over several nights. They really enjoyed it and I think she learned some interesting facts!

This is an awesome book that talks about a variety of animals and the coral reef that live in the ocean. Each page is designated to a certain aspect of the ocean. It contains real life pictures that are very detailed and go along with the information that is given about each creature. The text has facts in it such as the hottest habitats and the deepest trench. It also explains the life cycle of the animals in the ocean and the food chain. A really neat thing is that at the end of the book it te...more

Absolutely LOVED this book - so informative & just plain fun to read.
Ethan LOVES any books about the ocean so when I saw this one at the library I had to grab it & I'm so glad I did.

He really enjoyed the parts where I (sometimes) substituted the word 'poop' for 'prey' or any other word that the animals ate, LOLZ.. Ethan busted up laughing & was rolling when I randomly inserted that word to make things funny. I originally started it to see if he was paying attention & he was, hah...more

A nice introduction to ocean life enhanced by Nat Geo's stunning photographs.
Brenda Kahn
Brilliant photos and nice overview of a variety of ocean life. May not provide the depth of information for report writing, but it's still worth a look for inspiration and ideas.
Jean Brodahl
This one is definitely for older kids but Henry, 4, and I still enjoyed it. Especially the page on bizarre creatures of the deep!
