Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
This text is part of a series that takes a look at different geographic features around our world. In this particular entry, the reader learns about oceans. This easy to read book has a five chapter set-up followed by sections called, in order, True Statistics, Resources (a current grouping of books and websites and places to visit that address the topic with creativity and well-researched information), Important Words, an Index, and About the Author. The chapters focus on where and how much of Earth's surface is comprised of oceans, their depths, and what is typically found in the ocean. This is followed up by a consideration of ocean life, specifically coral and the Great Barrier Reef, creatures of the deep, currents and their effect on climates around the world, and finally, our future as we better adapt the resources of the oceans for our use. Excellent photos and graphics throughout further explain or share everything from the fact that at least 300 different species of coral live in the Great Barrier Reef to the surprising information that both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans have areas called garbage patches full of plastic, chemicals, and other waste products. This is a great book in a strong series "A True Book" for younger students looking for information about geographic regions on Earth. Reviewer: Jean Boreen, Ph.D.
