Sharks and Other Sea Creatures by DK Publishing

Sharks and Other Sea CreaturesSharks and Other Sea Creatures by DK Publishing
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Packed with fun activities, crafts, reading games, and amazing facts, kids can take a dive under the waves and meet all the colorful creatures beneath--from clown fish to starfish to jellyfish--in this educational project book.

In Sharks and Other Sea Creatures, each page has engaging photographs with clear text and simple step-by-step instructions for young readers to follow as they complete each project. Kids can learn how to create an egg carton ocean, make pretty paper plate clown fish, and make their way through an octopus maze. Perfect for kids who love the enchanting creatures of the deep, this book will improve their dexterity, memory, and brain development with each activity.

This is a colourful non - fiction book designed for children. The presentation of this book is easy to follow and children can find out lots of interesting facts about different creatures that live in the sea. What is really lovely about this book and makes it different is that after each section there is a craft activity for the children to do. I think this is what makes this non- fiction book different to others on the market at the moment and would be a good way of getting children interested in these type of books.

Although the book is designed for slightly older children to read independently, the activities are advised the child completes these with an adult. However the instructions are given for a child to read and follow independently.

This is a very good quality book with thick pages, a hard cover and has a high level of colour used on the pages. There is a mixture of illustrations and high quality images in the book.

I would recommend this as a book for personal use or for a club or school. It is very interesting and has kept the children who have read this entertained for some time. I particularly love the projects and may use this for an after school club in the summer term.

I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
