Stingrays! Underwater Fliers by Carole Gerber -- ADVISABLE

Gerber, Carole Stingrays! Underwater Fliers, illustrated by Isidre Mones. NONFICTION. Step Into Reading (Random House), 2015. $3.99. Content: PG.

This nonfiction early reader gives facts about stingrays in an engaging, uncomplicated way. A mixture of photographs and illustrations complement the text well. This would be a helpful resource for student research projects, or a good leveled reader for middle-elementary nonfiction lovers. Although it's not particularly graphic, very young children may find the scene where the hammerhead eats the stingray and the one where a stingray stings a swimmer a little scary.

Elementary -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
