Reviews - What do customers think about Eye Wonder: Ocean?

Fascinating facts on a suitable level for the age group  Apr 11, 2005
As soon as we opened this book, my inquisitive 5-year-old was hooked. It is filled with interesting facts about ocean life, written on a level just perfect for ages 4-8 (the target age group for these books). The pictures are rich and colorful. I bought "Space", too, and now we often read these books instead of good-night stories. Each 2-page spread contains so much to see and discuss that it takes the place of a standard good-night story. So if your child is curious about the ocean and what lives in it, I would really recommend this book. (Even for older kids, frankly. My mother and I both enjoy it and learned from it. And it's much more interesting to read and look at than a typical story book.)
Absolutely the best book on oceans for kids  Nov 4, 2004
I bought this book for my 5 year old who loves the ocean. Believe me we have more books on the subject than I care to think about. This one is by far the best I have seen. The photographs are superb. The knowledge is good yet simple for kids to follow and understand. I think I am having as much fun reading it as my son does.
Wonderful!  Nov 22, 2003
The photos alone are worth the price. Go nose-to-nose with a fangtooth; see an octopus's eggs festooning a cave; contemplate a dolphin's teeth. My 5-year-old daughter adores this book so much that she takes it to school for Show-and-Tell. Thanks to the clarity of the description of zones, she refers to the three levels of our house as the daylight zone, twilight zone, and midnight zone. The photos are vivid, the text is clear, and you can read as many or as few nuggets of information as your kid wants to hear - they're all self-contained. You just can't miss with this one.
