Format: Hardcover
About Habitats Oceans covers just about the different types of fish, mammals,living plants, the ocean floor and its formation.

It contains interesting and fun facts about the ocean.

Most ocean animals live near the top of the water.
There are mountains at the bottom of the ocean.
Some ocean animal eat meat and some eat plants.
There is not only a Sea Horse in the ocean there is also Sea Dragons.

I am so impressed with this book! I learned many things about the ocean and ocean animals from reading this book

The author and the illustrator brought their talents together to create this fun yet educational book to stimulate a child's mind and curiosity about the creatures of the ocean and their habitats.

There is a glossary in the back of the book that will be helpful to the reader. There is also an Afterword that has information about the flora and fauna the child will see in the illustrations.

I highly recommend this book for all ages.

I really liked the pictures; they were very well done, but I would have liked more text explaining oceans. Text was only one sentence describing oceans, but I needed a little more information for my class. Still, the paintings are well done showing the diversity of life there. It's a good backup or supplemental book, but I wouldn't use it as my main instructional text.

I love Cathryn Sills science books. They cover the subject thoroughly and with the beautiful illustrations and simple text, the concepts are easily grasped by the younger students. This is a must have book for lower elementary school teachers.

These are wonderful books with vibrant illustrations and so much good information in a few simple sentences. The preschool children dote on them and the primary aged children use they as starting points for research in the Montessori classroom. Some of the children have convinced their parents to get some of the books for their homes.
