A great, colorful, fact-filled book about the Coral Reef and all the creatures that live within it. This book is a great example of conventions.

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.

Informational. Great book for the classroom to teach about coral reefs. lots of details and vocab. Would be good to use in a unit about natural habitats or just the ocean in general.
