Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Oceans and sea life are featured in this beautifully illustrated introduction to the oceans of the world. There are paintings of the Southern, Atlantic, Pacific, Arctic, and Indian Oceans along with tropical and subtropical oceans that include the wildlife native to each ocean. Each page has one informative sentence and a label of the name of the ocean and the animal. An illustration of a world map shows the oceans that are represented in this nonfiction text. Stingrays, sharks, dolphins, whales, clams, lobsters, and turtles are some of the animals that are identified with the various oceans. Facts about the oceans explain what an ocean is, how the oceans are joined together, and how the bottom of the ocean is called the ocean floor. Some plants, such as kelp and seaweed, are also shown. Contrasts are made between how sea animals move in different ways and how some stay in one place. Brief sentences tell how some ocean animals eat meat, and others eat plants. An afterword contains paragraphs with additional information about each page. This afterword would be useful for adults to further explain and provide more details when they are reading with young children. A glossary and bibliography are included in this "About Habitats" series. The text is a very good basic source for science education and interesting reading with visual pleasure.

    About Habitats: Oceans - Highly Recommend!

    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.
