READING LEVEL: GRADE K AND UP
School Library Journal—Series Made Simple,
April 2021

“Offering vibrant color photographs and packed with fun facts, these books are about all kinds of ocean life—coral, eels, lobster, shrimp, manatees, and sea dragons. The strength of this series is that the text and photographs align perfectly: each spread features a word and a short statement using that word, prompting readers to make connections between what they see and what they read. The last page of each book shows four close-up pictures and asks, ¿Lo encontraste? (What did you find?), and provides a review of relevant words matched with pictures. A visual glossary with close-up examples is included in each book. VERDICT An ideal update for large collections. ”
