I really liked this book because it is a leveled book. I think it would be a good book to implement into a guided reading lesson. The book is very informational but it also shares a story. While the book did provide a lot of information, I think the story it tells as well will really help students stay interested. I feel if it just listed and presented a bunch of facts students would lose interest fast and won't really pay attention to what they are reading.

This book is a leveled reader that should be added to everyone's classroom shelf. This book offers nonfiction text with illustrations that create a sense reality that people can help manatees from being endangered. This story is written by Faith McNulty and she wrote about a time when her and a biologist were swimming and monitoring a local group of manatees. This book offers many details about manatees and their lifestyles. It also create a soft sense of appreciation of how gentle manatees are. ...more

I generally really like these books as they are full of scientific facts and beautiful illustrations. I did enjoy this book but the ongoing story with Woody the Marine Biologist was a little bit too long and a little bit too boring.
Beautiful pictures. Great details of the science.

Fun story. I learned that manatees never fight, ever. Not each other, not to preserve their babies. They just don't. They have "toe nails" on their front flippers from when they were land animals.
