This book was endorsed by the National Geographic and had a science experiment for kids to try in the back!

In school this week we have been reading/watching videos on aquanaut Sylvia A. Earle. It was cool to read this fun yet informative picture book by her about Coral Reefs and their importance to our planet. The afterward has an easy experiment to show how filter feeders get their food.
