I like this book because the writing is short and concise. The illustrations tell most of the story. It would be great for an independent read for older students with lower reading levels. I also love Steve Jenkins. He is another talented writer and illustrator. Although for this book, he was just the illustrator.

I love this book for the littles: my daughter loves this song--and what a wonderful way to teach her about the coral reef than by song. The book includes the sheet music to the song as well!
I read three books to Emily, while the boys did a webquest:
They sat next to each other and searched and read different sites. I found many of these sites through different formal webquest assignments. QuestGarden has an amazing site that you can find many different assignments and projects all starting with a webquest. After we finished our research, we made a coral reef mural. Complete with all sorts of animals. After we finish with the coral reef--we are going to move onto sharks.
