Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Catherine Campbell Wright
This is a beautiful and informative book. Morris makes the world of oceans come alive with vivid photographs, colorful illustrations, and clear text. The title page photo of a spectacular jeweled beach invites us to study all we can about tides, icebergs, sea life and much more. A photograph, illustration, or table accompanies most new terms and concepts for clearer understanding. In addition to exploring familiar ocean terms, Neil Morris discusses and includes pictures of unusual features such as black smokers, fjords and pancake ice. Chapter topics include ocean minerals, transportation, seafood, ocean life and environmental concerns. Also in the series are Deserts, Volcanoes, Mountains, and Caves.
