Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
What's the deal with the words "ocean" and "sea"? When we view the ocean, we only see a huge expanse of blue water; what's underneath? What could the sea floor be like? What could possibly live in the salty water, and how can humans find out since they can't breathe underwater? What is a coral reef? Tagliaferro offers very young readers a fine introduction to the oceans in this book, part of the "First Facts" series. Using colorful photo illustrations and simple text, the book touches on what a sea is. It includes a simple science experiment for determining the density of salt water verses fresh water. It explains wave action, as well as how deep the oceans are, and it identifies the various zones, based on amounts of sunlight. The book features the geography of the ocean floor, plants and animals that live there, and how humans study the oceans. Scattered throughout the book are boxed "did you know?" factoids, such as that, in 2006, scientists found twenty-four new kinds of fish swimming near Indonesia, including a shark that "walks" with its fins. This is a good introduction to the oceans, with a simple glossary, bibliography, age-appropriate internet sites and index.
