Read an Excerpt

If you look underwater on any of the coral reefs of the world, you will see an incredibly beautiful place. Wow! Coral reefs may be the most interesting places on earth. A coral reef is made of millions of animals called coral. Corals have hard skeletons that attach to each other, forming huge colonies. A coral colony can be almost any shape, and many different colonies form a reef.
