Each of the books in this new series, "Life in the Sea," offers excellent photographs and a straightforward text about the major body of water noted in the title. The Red Sea is not very large but in the middle it does reach depths of more than a mile. It is a warm and salty sea and due to the huge coral reefs and the variety of fish, the Red Sea is a scuba diver's paradise. The pictures of the fish and the beautiful corals have the quality of a National Geographic article and the entire series would make a great addition to a school or classroom library. A glossary, short bibliography and index are included.
