There's a NEW book series written by Lucille Colandro, that's a spin-off from her regular "Old Lady Who Swallowed" books! The new books feature the old lady as a different type of character; in this book, she is a mermaid. The book is entitled, "There was an Old Mermaid Who Swallowed a Shark". The twist about these books is that there is a pair of students on each page that give informational facts about the objects presented in the text. These books are a wonderful way to mix nonfiction and fiction together, provide a format for research, and entertain students in the meanwhile. This is a book companion for the book that I know you will love!
The book features ocean animals, such as a shark, starfish, etc. So this is a great book for ocean studies, summertime, and more!
