L. Patricia Kite has a biology teaching credential, is an active environmental person, and enjoys writing for young children. This book earned an AAAS listing.From Kirkus Reviews:
Adults sharing these handsome color photos with preschoolers or new readers will want to begin with the informative note at the end, which substantially amplifies the elementary, determinedly spritely text, prone to condescending asides (``Do not poke it. Ouch!''). Still, the text is clear and can be understood by quite young children (``Jellyfish come in many sizes--smaller than a grape and bigger than a bed''), who may have seen some of these fascinatingly varied creatures at the beach. But the splendid photos--many taken under water and/or at night--are the book's chief strength. A drawing depicts the life cycle; body parts are indicated on some photos, but the different types illustrated are unnamed (except for an acknowledgment that the creature on the cover is ``a jellyfish cousin, the Porpita'').
