Reviews

The World of Ocean Animals - Reviewed by School Library Journal

General information, fun facts, and well-chosen photos introduce animals from ocean habitats. A few sentences per page describe physical characteristics, usually in relation to how those affect behaviors. The beluga’s coloring and neck flexibility, for example, are described in terms of how these features aid its survival (Beluga Whales). Feeding habits, predators, and birth are also covered. Photographs support the facts effectively, showing the animals in their ocean environments, with well-chosen close-ups and useful captions. All images are full page or larger. Other useful visuals include a diagram identifying key body parts and a range map. Varieties within a family are noted in the text when needed in Sea Lions, Dolphins, and Manatees; several books encompass just a single species respectively. VERDICT Excellent introductions to marine creatures.
