Wild Kratts is a HUGE hit in our house…with everyone. The kids love the show and us adults don’t get annoyed when they want to watch it over and over and over and over and basically for as long as they watch tv…every day. To top off its awesomeness… it’s educational! Then they go and do something more awesome… they came out with a book! Wild Sea Creatures: Sharks, Whales and Dolphins is out and is a Step Into Reading Level 2 Book!! Perfect for beginner readers!
The book has simple and short sentences and uses easy to identify sight words. The Gentleman can identify all of his suggested sight words so he was very excited to be able to read them in the Wild Kratts book. He is in Kindergarten and technically still reading Level 1 books but he loves this book and is learning new words because of it. My Diva pretends to read the book but is learning sounds and of course the animal names.
Wild Sea Creatures: Sharks, Whales and Dolphins is perfect for kids who are beginning to sound out words on their own but might need a little help still. Even the animal names are mostly easy enough to sound out with the exception of Colossal maybe. The text is large so it is easy to see each letter in order to pronounce each sound which is great.
The information about each animal is of course brilliant and I love that my kids learn new facts about different sea creatures. They even learned about creatures they have never heard about before, the Yeti Crab! Did you know they have “hairs” on their legs to help them find food? I even learned a thing or two! The art is fantastic and done in the style of the show which I love.
My favorite feature about this book aside from it being Wild Kratts of course is that it is extremely educational. Wild Kratts has a way of keeping kids engaged and wanting to learn as much about animals in the world as they possibly can. The information given are all facts about real animals and written and presented in such a way that even the fact that Great White Sharks like to eat Dolphins is not scary.
If your little reader is a fan of the show they will LOVE this book and want to read it over and over. Probably until they have the whole thing memorized which isn’t a bad thing. You will love that they are wanting to read and learning at the same time…and the quiet while they concentrate on their new favorite book is pretty nice too.
