The "I Wonder Why" series are aimed at slighter older than our kindergarten children, as they have detailed information sections. However, they're great for sharing as they are full of interesting illustrations, and because they model asking and answering questions. They're great to demonstrate how we can use books to find information, and for reading together. This series would be great for at home reading also.
This book gives great information about different oceans, the creatures that live in them, and other great facts. This book has good illustrations (not real photos) and has a lot of information about the sea and sea life. I would say this book is appropriate for older students because some of the words are more difficult to read and comprehend.
