My son will be studying oceans so I compiled a list of resources we’ll be using. My have a full blown ocean lover and he’s in the fun age where he’s so enthusiastic about the world around him. He loves sharks and whales and loves any movies related to the ocean. He’s such an animal lover and wants to know everything about them.
I often visit the library for all of our books so I can only go with what is available then which takes some planning.
