What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A scuba diver encounters exquisite coral reef creatures in this clever introduction, which includes a gatefold of a reef shark, to one of world’s most alluring—and threatened—habitats.

Luminous spreads of true-to-size sea life, from a brilliantly colored rainbow parrotfish to a venomous southern stingray, and a surprise gatefold fit together into one scene in this meticulously illustrated nonfiction picture book.

Accompanying the vibrant artwork are descriptions of the 29 creatures that reveal their intriguing habits and more about the Caribbean coral reef they call home. A key included in the back matter shows how the pages smartly fit together. An index, a map, and a section on protecting coral reefs are also included. Budding conservationists will love learning about this vital ecosystem of coral reefs around the world.

Favorite pastime? Reading with my kids. Just finished Nana Cracks the Case!
5.0 / 7.0

More of an encyclopedia, the facts are many and the text is fairly dense. But for strong readers interested in fish, this is a fantastic book, as it is for teaching about marine life, especially among coral reefs.
