Usborne First Encyclopedia of Seas and Oceans Apr 11, 2008
I like these books because they are great to use with ESOL students who are learning to read English and have to do sophisticated work in the content areas. These books help by providing an easy to read passage and plenty of photographs. They are very helpful. Young kids will love them too.
Super for the growing scientist! Jun 27, 2007
Excellent mix of good photography and artwork. Insightful information. Good start to get a youngster interested in the aquatic world!
Wonderfully Informative and Creative Jun 12, 2005
I am planning to use this book in teaching middle school science. Although the contents are reletively basic, the internet links are vast and provide considerable and diverse learning opportunities. I would recommend this book for ALL ages.
Not quite the encyclopedia Apr 1, 2005
I would downgrade the age range for this rather slim book to 4-6 years old. It is beautifully illustrated and cheerfully colorful but the factual coverage is very light -- it's really not anything near encyclopedic -- more like an abridged pocket-type miniguide. It covers about 30 main topics with four to five subtopics, with about one or two sentences on each topic or subtopic. Each topic gets about two pages. A seven year old with good reading skills will probably consume it in 10 minutes.
Fact-filled book --- plus internet links! Jun 16, 2003
My daughter bought this book through a school bookfair and thoroughly loved reading it. I would give the book alone 5 stars for all the enjoyment and knowledge she's gotten from it. However, on every page, there is an internet link where you can get much more information about each subject in the book. What a bonus! I highly recommend this book for middle-grade elementary school children who like science.
