This is a lovely picture book about the life found in and around a coral reef. A great fact filled story for 3rd through 5th graders. It is always great to find an engaging nonfiction picture book. The illustrations are beautiful, but my students each year struggle a bit to remember that this is nonfiction, because they expect nonfiction to be a photo essay. Some pages look too cartoonish - very similar to the Finding Nemo movie.
