Description of this Book

Featuring fascinating fishy facts accompanied by bright, bold, and beautiful illustrations, this book takes children on a journey through the sea and all its zones. Touching on mammals, fish, invertebrates, and reptiles, The Sea Book explores a wealth of incredible marine animals and their habitats, from up on the ice, down to colourful coral reefs, underwater forests, and right down to the deepest darkest depths where the weird and wonderful lurk. Following on from The Bee Book, Charlotte Milner continues to highlight to children important ecological issues faced by our planet, this time with a focus on marine life and the damaging effects humans are having on our seas. Children will discover what they can do to help, and there are tips on how to live plastic-free. Children will even get to craft their own recycled shopping bag! This charming celebration of the sea shows children just how extraordinary our oceans are, and is a reminder that it is up to us to keep it that way.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Stands out, amid shoals of ocean-focused fact books, for its friendly and appealing design; it has clearly been made not for the coffee table but for children to use and enjoy. From the role the sea plays in sustaining human life, to details of exotic animals such as the cookiecutter shark and by-the- wind sailor, it is rich, engrossing, and packed with passion - especially when calling to preserve the seas from plastic pollution. * The Guardian *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
