This book was a great book for children who are interested in learning about the underwater life of the sea. Its almost like a National Geographic kids book, which as a child I always loved to read! The pictures are absolutely amazing in this book, and allow the reader to really imagine what goes on underwater. It also teaches children the importance use of technology and without it, capturing these moments would be impossible. Great book to have in the classroom!

This book was very cool! I enjoyed learning about the ways that oceanographers explore the deep oceans to find new things. I felt like a little kid while reading this because I was so interested in what was going on. I have always enjoyed learning about the ocean and this book and the pictures in it can turn anyone into a lover of oceanography.
