Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Children's Literature

With clear, interesting text and photo illustrations to die for, this book offers a fine overview of oceans and seas.

Children's Literature
Whether young readers live at the coast or are visiting the ocean, whether they have never been there or have been there many times, this book is an affordable book that would be a good choice for purchase. With clear, interesting text and photo illustrations to die for, this book offers a fine overview of oceans and seas. Contents include sea birds, fish and other marine creatures, ocean food chains, coral reefs, living history (the coelacanth), and ocean mysteries such as the giant ocean sun fish, huge manta ray and sea turtles. Also included are waves and tides, how oceans affect weather, and underwater landscapes. Humankind’s effect on the oceans and how people can save and protect the seas are thought-provoking features. A, additional bonus is a section featuring science and art projects: making waves, cooking up a tasty sea slug (no, not a real one!), and creating a seascape, star fish or jolly jellyfish. Part of the “Science Kids” series. Highly recommended. Reviewer: Judy Crowder
