This soothing bedtime story explains how ten different marine mammals--animals that live in water but breathe air--sleep in the ocean. Based on up-to-date scientific research, the brief portraits are explained in simple, poetic language. Water Beds invites children to drift into sleep on gentle waves of imagination. The "For Creative Minds" educational section includes fun facts about marine mammal adaptations, and a "Design Your Own Marine Mammal" craft.This nonfiction picture book with a cuddle factor includes a 5-page For Creative Mindssection in the back of the book and a 31-page cross-curricular Teaching Activity Guideonline. Water Beds is vetted by experts and designed to encourage parental engagement. Its extensive back matter helps teachers with time-saving lesson ideas, provides extensions for science, math, and social studies units, and uses inquiry-based learning to help build critical thinking skills in young readers. The Spanish translation supports ELL and dual-language programs. The enhanced ebook reads aloud in both English and Spanish with word highlighting and audio speed control to promote oral language skills, fluency, pronunciation, text engagement, and reading comprehension.
