Wetlands Reading List Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 DLESE Reviewed Collection
The Wetlands Reading List is an annotated list of printed material that will supplement lesson plans and provide students with suggestions for independent reading on wetlands. The goal of the list is to encourage students to explore and develop a respect, understanding and appreciation for wetlands. Books contained in the Wetlands Reading List include different types of literature. Factual, nonfiction, picture books and fiction titles are provided. Entries are listed alphabetically by grade level in the Wetlands Reading List. Grade level refers to reading level and not the level for being read to, except for some books described at the primary level which may be better read to the child. Each title cites the author, publisher, date published, page length and grade range, and is classified as an easy reader (picture books), fiction, nonfiction or a story collection or anthology. Following each citation is a summary and comment. The summary, written in phrases, sentences or sentence fragments, is intended to capture the essence of the book, be it plot or factual material. The comment provides more in-depth background information on the book and its significance in respect to the wetlands resource.
