    The first time I read this book to my kids, I didn't really like

    The first time I read this book to my kids, I didn't really like it. But my kids did. So we read it again. And again. And about 20 more times after that. I found that I liked it better each time. For the most part, The rhyming text flows easily. The illustrations are highly detailed and accurately depict the sea life described. It was interesting to learn about the different depths of the ocean and find out what animals live at certain levels.

    There were two things that I felt could have been better. The first is that some of the illustrations didn't plan for the gutter very well and fish heads got stuck in the fold of the book, which made it kind of difficult to see all the nicely rendered details. The second is that I felt like some information was sacrificed for the sake of the rhyme. I would have preferred a non-rhyming book so that we could have gotten more facts about the animals.

    That being said, my kids and I really enjoyed our trip(s) into the deep and I look forward to more non-fiction books from this author and publisher.

    Do you know the different zones of deep ocean habitats?

    What is it like 4,500 feet below the surface of the ocean? And what kinds of creatures are there? In A Day in the Deep, author Kevin Kurtz will enable the reader to travel deep into the ocean way below the surface and encounter some animals hard to imagine. This book is a journey through the dark depths of the sea towards the ocean floor. Most ecosystems require sunlight, but deep in the ocean where the sun doesn't shine creatures have adapted some very interesting ways to see, protect themselves, and find food. Do you know the different zones of the deep ocean habitats and what strange animals live in which zone?

    The organisms featured in the rhyming text and nicely illustrated with the full-color, full-page artwork by Erin E. Hunter include Sargassum fish, cookiecutter sharks, viperfish, plankton, headlight fish, vampire squid, spookfish, marine snow, pelican eels, Atolla jellyfish, and anglerfish, among others. There are four pages of “For Creative Minds” information and activities in the back of the book: “Deep Ocean Habitats,” “Match the Animal to its Life Zone,” “Glowing in the Dark,” and “Living Under Pressure.” There are more free learning activities available at the publisher’s website. Kids will enjoy discovering the unique habitats, adaptations, and food chains of these deep-sea creatures. Two similar books by Kurtz, an environmental educator and curriculum writer, are A Day in the Salt Marsh and A Day on the Mountain.
