REVIEW

Learn about the world’s oceans and their creatures

Not only is this a search and find book, your child will learn about the ocean too. You will learn about the ocean animals, their habitats, and what you can do to keep the ocean healthy. On each double page, you have 6 ocean animals with little facts about them to search for in the bigger picture at the bottom of the pages. Four additional items are listed to search for too. A small blurb about that particular habitat is also provided.  Answer key in back of book as well as a glossary. Very nice!
