From gentle turtles to shimmering shoals of fish, the diversity of life on a coral reef is celebrated in this visually stunning picture book for readers 4 to 8. Pairing Laura Knowles's rhymes with Jennie Webber's intricately etched artwork, this guide explores the life cycle, diversity, and color of the coral reef ecosystem, as well as the threats that the reef faces and what we can do to save it. Each page is packed with such creatures as manta rays, eels, octopi, sea horses, and humpback whales, while the book concludes with a three-page pullout with a panorama of the reef on one side and fun facts on the reverse.
