This book would make a great read-aloud story for young children, as the illustrations are bound to hold their attention. I would recommend this text to teachers of children in Pre K-grade 3 who want to address the topic of adaptations, especially among sea creatures. - NSTA Recommends
This book will be satisfying reading, and I am certain that young children will listen intently or read it themselves. - Science Books & Films
