INFO: Economos, Christine. The Coral Reef. H. 1999.
DESC: This cheerful, navigable non-fiction piece is a splendid introduction to coral reefs for budding readers. It presents many new creatures and ideas in an easy-to-read structure, with one or two sentences per page, and big, bright full-color photo accompaniments. Students will enjoy the names of coral reef creatures – like “yellow tang fish,” “clownfish,” and “green lettuce slug.” This one makes written reflections about “what have you learned?” a cinch!
