=This is a picture book for kids in kindergarten through about 4th or 5th grade. It's a description of marine animals in different depths of the sea, starting at the surface and going down, down, down to the deepest trenches that exist. Very well presented are pictures of the astonishing of diversity of marine life, and the effects of both lack of sunlight and greater & greater pressure on that diversity as the reader is taken down layer by layer. I tried this out on our 6-year old granddaughter. She surprised me by knowing the story line already, probably learned in her kindergarten class (bravo for her teacher!). My main complaint is that this is not a book a 6-year old can pick up and understand for herself. Many of the words are too advanced for a kid that age to comprehend. However, I enjoyed reading it with her and talking about it, even though she kept pointing out to me that she already "got" it. That verifies to me that the reasonably sophisticated scientific concepts in the book can be understood even by a child in kindergarten.

The review in the New York Times (a must-read) led me to buy this book. However, despite being a picture book, it is definitely not for toddlers. Older children will love it, though. I bought it for my niece and nephew and read it aloud to them and their mom. Turns out the adults were the most fascinated by the book!
