The book Oceans is about the worlds seas and oceans and everything happening in them. My favorite parts of this book were the ways it tied in the importance of the oceans to humans. I think most children just think of the ocean as a place full of water with animals, not as an actual important factor to our society. I read this to my 3 year old cousin and he enjoyed the colorful illustrations of the sea animals. I think this book is also the perfect length for young children. Review by Connor T. age 14, Broward Mensa
About Habitats Oceans covers just about the different types of fish, mammals,living plants, the ocean floor and its formation. It contains interesting and fun facts about the ocean. Most ocean animals live near the top of the water. There are mountains at the bottom of the ocean. Some ocean animal eat meat and some eat plants. There is not only a Sea Horse in the ocean there is also a Sea Dragons. I am so impressed with this book! I learned many things about the ocean and ocean animals from reading this book The author and the illustrator brought their talents together to create this fun yet educational book to stimulate a child's mind and curiosity about the creatures of the ocean and their habitats. There is a glossary in the back of the book that will be helpful to the reader. There is also an Afterword that has information about the flora and fauna the child will see in the illustrations. I highly recommend this book for all ages. Disclosure I received a free copy of this book from Peachtree Publishers for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. It is my own opinion.
