I was so excited when I received an email from the author, Monika Mira about her newly released book, Coral Reefs since falling in love with her children's books a few weeks ago when I first reviewed Hawaii's Green Sea Turtles. I have to say, just like the last book, I, and my kids are mesmerized by the images in these books and the way Mira makes science fun!
Everything you have ever wanted to know about Coral Reefs is in this book. What are they? Are they dead or alive? Do they eat? Where can you find them? Why are they important? What kind of creatures are found in coral reefs? What's a Nudibranch? So Cool! And, finally, what are the main threats to Coral Reefs, why do we care and how can we help? Answers to all of these questions and MANY more! The book even includes a glossary with links from the terms within the text to the glossary for further explanation. Overall, the book is extremely informative for someone interested in learning more about Sea Life, doing a book report or just sharing educational stories with their children. The images, as I expected, were beautiful and true to life photographs! I just love Mira's style!
Monika’s books are aimed at teaching middle-school children about what goes on at the bottom of the sea. And she does it well. As with all her books, Coral Reefs is concise, but clear, and very informative. I certainly learnt a lot. So, I now know what a coral reef is, how it feeds, who lives on it (illustrated by stunning photos of the beautifully coloured fish and patterned molluscs), and its importance. Monika lays out the threats to the existence of coral reefs and then the simple environmental measures we can take to protect them.
It’s always a pleasure to read and learn with Monika. Her books have a valuable place on the bookshelf.
Imagine seeing for the first time how a coral reef looks when it's healthy, what an eel or a clownfish look like and learning about their lives! This book is wonderful for anyone who wants to experience worlds that normally only scuba divers and marine biologists get to see - and you can do it from the comfort of your own home.
I enjoyed immensely looking at the photos, reading the description of each sea creature, then viewing each photo again. I feel like I came to know so much more about coral reefs and their denizens of the deep from this book.
I'm fascinated by the Butterflyfish!
Consider this book not only for young readers but adults. I'm thinking how great this is to review before vacation. Also the health and the life of the Coral Reef are dependent on adults learning what hinders the balance of the reef and encouraging the next generation to protect and preserve its life.
Educational and Beautiful! Highly Recommend.
I am going on a scuba trip soon, because I just got my license, and I am sure the info in this book will help me identify the different kinds and the diverse life that surrounds these beautiful rainforests of the seas.
The book is really well written and very easy to understand. It might be short but it has colorful pictures and tons of cool info for the young ones. I recommend buying this one for your kids!
