NSTA - Martha Svatek

"The lives of fascinating sea animals will engage young readers. In this series of sturdy, colorful, paperback, "read-and-earn" 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. The octopus is a mollusk, like the clam and snail, yet it shows surprisingly advanced adaptations to its habitat. The close-up photography of this animal will provide readers with the opportunity to visualize how it lives in its deep-water environment. Words written in bold are found in the glossary, and a "body map" in each book provides a valuable introduction to the similarities and different adaptations of each sea animal. 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

School Library Journal - John Peters

"These nautical profiles pair well-chosen color photos-such as a view of a Pacific giant octopus with a diver next to it for scale and an unusual close-up of the inside of a leatherback turtles mouth showing the spines that prevent jellyfish from escaping-with one or two sentences of simply worded commentary for each. Though each volume includes references to several varieties of the chosen creature, one species in particular is highlighted; Weddell seals in Seal, for instance, and Great Whites in Shark. An awkwardly phrased claim that jellyfish "squeeze their body tight and push out the water to make them move" aside, all of these make good choices for pleasure or purpose reading. –John Peters, formerly at New York Public Library School Library Journal November 2010" - School Library Journal

Library Media Connection - Kathleen McBroom

"This series on sea animals will appeal to emerging readers in early elementary grades. Each book profiles one species. Engaging features include attractive covers, straightforward sentences in large font, and brief chapters that align with national science standards. Chapter headings pose questions to create a purpose for reading. Technical vocabulary terms appear in bold print and are defined in the glossary. The biggest draw is the illustrations. Half-page color photos aligned with text appear on every page, and each selection includes an animal body map highlighting physical features. Of equal interest to researchers and browsers, these titles should prove popular. Bibliography. Glossary. Websites. Index. –Kathleen McBroom, Media Specialist, Dearborn (Michigan) Public Schools Library Media Connection March/April 2011" - Library Media Connection
