The Ocean Book is Great! Jul 27, 2007
This is an excellent and well-illustrated book on important aspects of the ocean. It includes research findings, physical characteristics and composition of ocean waters. Tides, waves, currents, and weather are discussed. Fishing and marine life are described. The book concludes with a description of the worldwide Genesis flood. My granddaughter who aspires to become a marine biologist really loved the book. I recommend it to all!
Beautiful and God-honoring Jun 27, 2007
This is another terrific book from the Wonders of Creation series. I have all the books in the series published so far. (I wrote to the publishers and they told me some more would be released this fall.) All of them have beautiful photography giving glory to the God of creation. If you are not God-fearing you will not like the text of this book, but you may still be inspired by the beautiful photography. This is a great asset to use to illustrate to your children--or anyone--how our God loves us enough to create beauty and diversity in all areas of life.
Wonderful Jun 3, 2006
I used this book as a reference when teaching my children about the oceans. We enjoyed all the colorful pictures and the information was very useful. I have enjoyed all of Master Books Wonders of Creation series. Their books always point to God the Creator of all things. It is wonderful to read about God's creation from a creationist perspective.
