From both a historical and scientific point of view, above and below the surface, this engaging guide brings the world’s oceans to life through fun facts, illustrations, and in-depth information. Interactive activities appear throughout, ranging from making solar stills and simple fishing spears to experimenting with a homemade diving bell and figuring out how much water it really takes to survive. With the oceans being the least explored environment on Earth, this reference illuminates some of the most incredible and surprising plants and animals as well as how to survive and navigate these vast expanses.

Review:

"A fascinating gem of a book." —The New York Times Book Review

"An amazing resource for any child interested in the world's largest ecosystem. If you had a question to be answered about the ocean, you would more than likely find it in the eighty-six page resource guide. The cartoon-type pictures, maps, charts, and boxes of 'fascinating facts' bring the complex information to life for children."  —Clear Review, Madeira City Schools
