Heads And Tails: Underwater

John Canty

At first we can only see the sea creature’s tail ends. Some clues help us try to identify each underwater creature as we learn more about each one. Now, can you guess sea creature that each tail belongs to before they are revealed once the page is turned?

This striking hardcover illustrated picture book displays a cavalcade of aquatic creatures which swim, glide or crawl left to right across the page, with the head of one appearing on the left while the tail of its predecessor is on the right

This book is a great start for kids setting out on the research journey, learning to look for clues in text and illustration, and learning to discuss things with others to share and disseminate knowledge.
