Editorial Reviews

Review

“Equally suitable for quick dips or lengthy dives, this gallery of ocean dwellers will attract schools of newly fledged readers.” --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A delightful, age-appropriate introduction to ocean creatures big and small.” –Children’s Book Council

“What a fun book this is for young readers…Some of the animals will be quite familiar, others less so, but all of them will be popular reads.” –Booklist

"Vivid, high quality photographs accompany the descriptions of animals, and questions encourage readers to make connections between their experiences and the text." --Library Media Connection

I recently discovered the 'Nat Geo Kids First Book of ..' series and got them for my nephews! These are an instant hit, not just with them but with also their parents! I am myself enthralled with the quality of the book and the simple language and vivid images that jump out of the book! My 6 and 4 year old nephews love reading them out loud. There are very few immensely satisfying feelings in the world and listening to a kid read out of a book he loves is definitely one of the top 10! :)

I pre-ordered this from Amazon and their price guarantee is unparalleled! A Day after the book released, it was in the hands of the tiny tots! ( LOVE Amazon Prime! )

The entire set of books make a very very treasured gift set. You can't go wrong with Nat Geo! These will keep you coming back and reading them over and over again! :)

The pictures are so colorful. My 2 Grandchildren and I learned so many new facts about the creatures that live in our ocean. I highly recommend this book to parents and grandparents. Another excellent book from National Geographic.

My 2 year old fell in love with this book at daycare. It would calm him instantly if he was upset. I bought him a copy from a brick and mortar bookstore, and he was thrilled. It got a little torn up (he used it like a sled, don't ask), so I bought a replacement from Amazon. The pictures are gorgeous and the book is very informative. I only wish that in the description of size of the animals, it gave actual measurements in addition to the relative descriptions. That is such a minor thing. This book is known as Nemo Book around here, no explanation needed!

I grew up on the Pacific ocean. Choosing books about the ocean for my 3 year old son, now that we don't live by the ocean, is something that is very important to me. I want it to be realistic. I want it to educate as well as excite him and to give him a true feel for what the ocean and its animals are like. National Geographic seemed like a logical fit and it has definitely lived up to my expectations! My son knew every animal by the 2nd day we had it and now shows it to his 1 year old sister with so much enthusiasm! I adore every book I've ever gotten from National Geographic. I cannot recommend them enough.

If your child is very into fish and the ocean they will love this. I only give it four stars because my kids did not become obsessed with it like they did with the space and dinosaur books from the same series. They still enjoy it but don't devour it like they do dinos/space.

My two year old granddaughter is already well acquainted with the ocean and many of her creatures because we are a scuba diving family. This book has such great photographs and a lot of detailed information. My two year old granddaughter and I spend time most days looking though this book talking about the animals and the ocean. Although she is too young for more than the pictures right now, I believe this book will grow with her and remain a favorite well into her childhood.

This is my son's favorite book right now. He's turning four and loves the pictures. And if he's happy, I'm happy :-)
