A welcome addition to any classroom bookshelf, Oceans is packed with fascinating detail. Creatures lurk in all manner of habitats…hiding behind die-cut gatefolds of coral or lost in camouflage and cryptic coloration. So what do you do? You seek them out with the aid of a small plastic magnifying glass included in the cover. It’s like taking a swim in a coral reef from the comfort of your chair. Includes a glossary with fascinating information about each ocean creature.
