Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-10-An engaging overview of marine sciences. Each chapter explores a topic in two to four pages, then poses questions accompanied by lucid explanations. This immediate opportunity to use the facts just presented, and the step-by-step process of explication, reinforce the text in a user-friendly fashion. Suggested activities include a stated purpose, materials needed, and clearly delineated procedures. The results are described, and a discussion of why things happened further amplifies the material. For example, two chapters on ocean pollution provide excellent information along with representative activities demonstrating run off and the effect of oil on bird feathers. The narrative is easy to read and understand. Informal and sometimes humorous line drawings appear throughout. Although similar in scope to Seymour Simon's How to Be an Ocean Scientist in Your Own Home (HarperCollins, 1988), the arrangement of text, questions, activities, and explanations in Oceans for Every Kid is clearer and more inclusive. This book is not only highly informative, but also great fun.?Frances E. Millhouser, Chantilly Regional Library, VA

I homeschool two kids, one in third grade, and one in fifth. This is a wonderful series. I love them. The experiments are always easy and most importantly to me, safe. They are always excited to do them, and it makes the information really stick in their heads. This is an excellent book for any parent interested in doing fun things with their kids.

It is a very educational book, but a little too advanced for the child I purchased it for. He is 7 years' old.
