"The lives of fascinating sea animals will engage young readers. In this series of sturdy, colorful, paperback, "read-and-learn" books, students explore facts about dolphins, sharks, seals, sea turtles, octopi, and jellies. How the animals behave, move, sleep, eat and hunt are described in clear, informative prose. A colorful photograph supports a few lines of text on each page, making the books accessible to even reluctant readers.
A "body map" in each book provides a valuable introduction to the similarities and different adaptations of each sea animal. As an ancient and simple form of marine life, the jellyfish will expand readers' understanding of animals and how they survive. A glossary defines the bold-faced terms in the text. As a set, the series can provide individuals or groups with content to understand biodiversity. Learning about life in the sea will be a rich and rewarding experience using these books. –Martha Svatek NSTA Website Posted 9/29/2010" - NSTA
