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
