Grade 1-4-This journey through the differing layers to the deepest realms of the ocean is written as an invitation to listeners to come along. The action begins with the first two sentences, "Wiggle your toes. Yep, they're still there inside those flippers." The text appears on a double-page, full-color photograph that shows an underwater view of the Australian Coral Reef, the ocean surface, and the sky above. The next spread features the colorful coral reef with photograph boxes highlighting individual parrotfish, pufferfish, clownfish, and butterflyfish. The jaunty narrative continues its active voice, "Kick left, kick right, and away you glide across the tropical shallows." Transported next to northern waters, scuba diving is described over a background photograph of long-beaked common dolphins soaring above the water. Every stunning photograph is a celebration of ocean life from the beluga whale face on the cover to the yawning California sea otter, the unusual mola mola, the brilliantly backlit sea nettle, and the page-filling red tuna crabs. Lovely to look at.
