Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
When the ocean water meets land is where the seashore begins. Along this water the tides come in and go out controlled by the moon, and it also houses a variety of wild life including birds, crustaceans, fish, seals and snails to name a few. Some of these creatures live in the water by the sandy beach while others exist in the shallow waters with the barnacles and anemones. Unfortunately the humans continue to pollute these seashores with oil spills and trash that make these habitats unlivable and even deadly for creatures. The broken up colorful written segments make the book easier to read and more appealing to all readers while the extraordinary photos give off a 3D effect as they focus on the amazing wildlife. The bold-faced vocabulary words have a simple definition in the back within the glossary and index while the content page shows a quick way to get to each section. This book is part of the "Watery Worlds" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—From the largest whales to the tiniest plankton, these titles cover animals and plants above, below, and beside the world's bodies of water. Straightforward text with good information appears between fact boxes and ovals, and it's a bit of a challenge adjusting to the many different fonts. Full-color photographs add clarity and interest. Bold words are defined in glossaries, and the indexes are thorough. The complete set is stronger than the individual volumes. An acceptable series, especially if the titles are shelved-and used-together.
