I have these, not sure how well your 4th grader reads but some are just below 4th grade and some are just bove and some are dead on, depends on the child.

Bears (Smart start reader)
Cats That Roar! (Hello Reader, Science L4)
Fun Facts About Creatures
Sea Full of Whales
Strange Creatures That Really Lived

and some teachers allow for dinosaurs, you could always ask but I also have these on dinosaurs as well,

Compsognathus: The Smallest Dinosaur (Dinosaur Discovery Era)
Dinosaurs in the Sea
How fast was velociraptor? (Junior scientist)

Doing a 10 for 1 credit if you are interested and can get them out by Monday.

I have a book on my shelf that might work . . .

Lootas Little Wave Eater: An Orphaned Sea Otter's Story :: Clare Hodgson Meeker
ISBN-13: 9781570611643 - ISBN-10: 1570611645
Reading Level: 9-12
Book Description:
An engaging, true-life account of an Alaskan sea otter pups rescue and adoption by the Seattle Aquarium.

Lootas, Little Wave Eater tells the story of a four-week-old orphaned sea otter that was adopted by the Seattle Aquarium. Color photographs throughout the book show how human handlers raised Lootas, then introduced her to other otters, and finally weaned her from constant human contact. Author Clare Meeker followed the story and worked closely with C. J. Casson, who was in charge of Lootass care. Additional illustrations help educate young readers about sea otter habitat, food, anatomy, predators, and more. Royalties from sales of this book benefit the Seattle Aquariums Sea Otter Program.
