ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
Synopsis

Synopsis

Swim with sharks! Dive with dolphins! Stroll the beach with penguins! Young
readers will joyfully immerse themselves in this awesome adventure at sea,
in which stunning National Geographic photos reveal hidden worlds of action
and beauty. We meet 30 favorite sea creatures and explore their watery
homes: playful dolphins, mysterious sharks, graceful sea turtles, waddling
penguins, and dozens of others. Kids will marvel at speedy swimmers on the
hunt, and smile at cuddly scenes of animal families.


To give background on the attention-grabbing photographs, each page is
sprinkled with fun facts and layered with information about ocean wildlife
and environments. Age-appropriate text tells each animal’s story in
language that’s accurate, lively, and non-intimidating. National Geographic
maps encourage kids to learn about the geography of land and sea.
Conservation tips help readers of all ages understand how we can be kind to
the oceans.


At home in the classroom and on the family bookshelf, is a trove of
thrilling sights and discoveries. Timed to coordinate with the release of
Disney’s much-anticipated movie on Earth Day 2010, this exciting book taps
into and encourages new awareness about the world’s marine environments.
