Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Four paper-over-board books, packed with engaging photographs and facts, kick off the Eye Wonder series. Readers learn which sea creatures dwell within the four ocean zones in Ocean by Samantha Gray. Sea cows, for instance, live in the sunlight zone, while the midnight zone is home to viper fish. Elinor Greenwood similarly examines every layer of tropical rain forests in Rain Forest. Dinosaur by Gray and Sarah Walker takes children through the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous eras; while Space by Simon Holland is a first guide to the galaxy and space travel.

    We love these books!

    My 3 year old son has a love for animals like nothing else. These books tell him all kinds of facts about them & has wonderful pictures. This is our 4th book by Eye Wonder, & we hope to keep collecting them.
