This book is an absolute beauty. It is part of Yuval Zommer’s series of Big Books and it certainly lives up to its name - big in size, big on facts and big on interest. It begins with an introduction to the animal families in the ocean: perfect for keen scientists. Throughout the book, we read lots of technical vocabulary and I love the ‘Fishy Phrases’ section at the back, encouraging readers to sound like an expert. The clever ‘can you find?’ challenge is a lovely little motivation to get readers scouring the pages, skimming and scanning. As they do, they will meet double-page spreads of sea turtles, seahorses, dragonets.. just to name a few. It is jam-packed with stunning illustrations and tons of facts. I like all the word play that Yuval sneaks in too! This is a fun, informative read, great for KS1 classes and perfect to link with plastic pollution themes (which Yuval nods to on the dolphin page.) If they have knowledge of the wonderful creatures of the sea, they will care about it.
