Review: Way Down Deep: Strange Ocean Creatures by Patricia Brennan Demuth

The All Aboard Reading series features stories that capture beginning readers' imagination while developing their vocabulary and reading comprehension. The Picture Readers, appropriate for preschoolers, combine a very simple text with rebuses. Flash cards bound in the book help make the transition from the rebus to the printed word. As the levels progress, the stories get longer, and the print size gets smaller, preparing readers for longer books with chapters. All the books are illustrated in full color, and engage a child's curiosity with a range of topics from science to sports, history, and fantasy. Grades 1 - Grade 3.

We picked this book up from K's school library.

This book is set up as a Step 2 book which means that a child can read the book but they may need help. K loved it and thought the pictures that went with it were awesome. You get to learn about some of the different kinds of fish that live in the very bottom of the ocean that you don't get to see very often. K seemed to know about all these animals but for myself I learned about a few new fish I have never seen or heard of before. This is a great book for the classroom if the kiddos are learning about the ocean or different kinds of creatures.
