Find out about this vast and rich storehouse of living things through lively descriptions of ocean plants and animals. From plankton too small for the naked eye to see, to sharks as big as a school bus, kids discover how each marine wonder has adapted to the ocean's unique conditions.

Detailed drawings and full-color photographs bring the ocean to the reader, while the accompanying text explores the mysteries of Earth's oceans and ocean life. Safe and simple experiments and activities that can be done at home or in the classroom give children hands-on experience with marine life.
