There is a wealth of information in this book to enthrall all ages about the wonders of the ocean. Very nicely illustrated! I donated it to our library but will probably order a copy for myself.
Got this as a gift for granddaughter to introduce her to the ocean, but really want to keep it for myself! This book is beautifully illustrated and the descriptions are succinct and beautifully written which I'm sure will make it interesting and easy for her to read and get her intrigued over life in the ocean. The book cover is colorful, detailed and really pretty enough to be displayed. Really happy with this purchase and glad my purchase funds the removal of 10 pieces of plastic from the ocean (another lesson for the youngster). Thanks to the author for a wonderful book and to Free the Ocean for all of their wonderful work!
I bought this book as a birthday present for a niece. It is very informative, good illustrations and promotes learning. I definitely recommends this book
