Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
The ocean as a habitat and the adaptations of some of the sea creatures who live there are very briefly explained in this small book of twenty-four pages. Fish have fins for swimming and gills for breathing under water. Lobsters have claws to grab fish. Octopuses can change color. Whales breathe through blow holes. Some seahorses look like seaweed. Sharks have sharp teeth. Color photographs of the preceding sea creatures appear above each simple statement. A double-page spread describes penguins and their adaptations. Eight unrelated facts about other sea life are included with no illustrations. Includes a simple glossary and index. This book could be used as an introduction to reference books with adult guidance. The text is so minimal that young children will need additional explanations for it to make sense. They will want to know why it is important that octopuses can change color or that seahorses can appear to be part of the seaweed. Also, some of the animals in the opening photographs are not identified in the text. "First Step Nonfiction" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
