Does anyone know of a good fiction read aloud that would include sharks or sea creatures, etc? Or, how about a read aloud about bugs? :) This is for a 7 y/o ds. I thought about Shark Beneath the Reef by Jean George but it has mixed reviews. Thanks for reading!

Island of the Blue Dophins? Although it is probably too old for him, its been awhile since I read it...probably more appropriate for a 10 or 12yo

Dolphin Adventure and Dolphin Treasure- true stories and superb. Absolutely brilliant.

Harry the Poisonous Centipede is great - not about bugs per se, but great.

Have you read The Magic Tree House's Dark Day in the Deep Sea -- it's about sea creatures and a giant octopus. It may be too easy, but all my dc like listening to those books (even the ones who've already read them :) ). Plus, it has a research guide to go along with it.
