From the Series Life Under the Sea
In Sea Horses, emergent readers will learn about a sea horse’s life in the ocean, including how a pair of sea horses mate by “dancing.” Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text will engage young readers as they discover the underwater world of sea horses.
A labeled diagram helps readers identify a sea horse’s body parts, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about sea horses online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Sea Horses also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index.
Sea Horses is part of Jump!’s Life Under the Sea series.

Each book reviewed contains vivid, color photographs of each title animal, its habitat, and related animals. Every close-up photograph provides great detail, such as the multiple colors that make up a crab’s claws. Topics covered include parts of the body, mating and/or how babies are born, predators, habitat environments, and different species types. Each page or page spread features one new fact, stated in simple, concise sentences. At the end of each book there is a “Learn More” section that includes a website with directions on how to search. This is a nice and safe feature for beginning web explorers. The titles in this series are recommended for collections in need of more primary nonfiction selections. Recommended.
