Reviews - What do customers think about J. Rooker, Manatee?
It's a great way to learn about this endangered animal. Jun 15, 1999
When a friend first introduced me to the book, J. Rooker, Manatee, we were in the middle of an endangered species unit with our third grade classes. We shared this unique manatee story with the students, and they were immediately moved by it's contents (the painted illustrations were beautiful, too). The story of J. Rooker helped the children see how easy an animal's life is threatened when humans are careless with motor boats in our waterways. In addition, the children learned a great deal about manatees from the cleverly placed facts in the story, and from the last few "fact pages" in the book. We've recommended this book to many teacher friends in other states and have bought copies for gifts, as well. It's a truly wonderful story!
