Did you know that less than 10% of the oceans have been explored? That's amazing, considering what Oceans has to offer. The moment kids see the spectacular 3-D image of dolphins leaping from the cover, they'll be hooked! This incredible book is filled with detailed photos, illustrations, and diagrams, as well as interesting text written just for budding oceanographers. From the surface to the seafloor, kids will discover the rich diversity of marine life, from microscopic plankton to the colossal blue whale, and investigate the anatomies of five creatures, including the magnificent king penguin and killer whale, on the revealing transparent pages. Sure to make a splash, Oceans is presented in a spiral-bound format with tabbed sections for quick reference, and comes with two oversized color posters showcasing the wonders of the ocean depths and life on a coral reef. Dive in, kids!About the Author:
