WILD & WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY: Ocean Animals by Johnna Rizzo


ABOUT THE BOOK

Fans of Disney Pixar's Finding Dory and Finding Nemo movies will love meeting the real underwater critters behind the film in this colorful, fact-filled nonfiction book. From life in coral reefs, to sharks and rays, to sea birds, kids will meet incredible sea-based animals in action, including the blue tang fish and clownfish. It's all captured with beautiful underwater photography and features cool info about our oceans -- including fascinating facts, maps, and marine conservation tips and efforts.

REVIEW

For those young readers who are fascinated by the ocean, this book is worth purchasing for the gorgeous photographs alone.  Not only is the book a large size but so are many of the photographs.  And as National Geographic has developed an amazing reputation for it's photographs, it's not surprising that that reputation shines through in this book.  This book provides an overview of the ocean as an habitat as well as the main groups of animals that live there.  Captions as well as short paragraphs with fascinating information make this a great browsing book.  The design of the book is beautiful with paragraphs of information balanced nicely with the accompanying photographs.  Ideas for young readers to use in helping to protect the ocean are included at the end.  This is a book that should be in all libraries as well as in the hands of young animal lovers.
