This Is the Ocean is a work of nonfiction intended for primary readers. This book is about the ocean and things that live in it. It is also about the cycles of the ocean.
I rated this book four stars because in the back of the book is a small vocabulary list that defines words such as mist, clouds, rain, and rivers. The illustrations are very cartoonish looking but they are composed of many bright colors. The colors in the illustrations are very realistic to what the actual colors are in real
I'm not sure this is a good introductory book- it seemed like the illustrations got in the way sometimes and made things a little confusing.
