The ABCs of Oceans

"....All of the books are lavishly and colourfully illustrated with photographs and pictures...Each book has a strong bias in favour of saving the earth, its species, and its habitats from the onslaught of expanding populations and industry. This is a Good Thing!...The final page of each volume has a separate index and a glossary of the words highlighted in the text entries, and there is also an initial table of contents. These make the books a useful tool for students just beginning to do research, but mostly the books will appeal to younger readers who prefer nonfiction to stories but who still require lots of pictures to help with understanding a piece of text. For older children, the books could be a starting point for a project, but there would not be enough information on any one subject to take them very far. Recommended." —CM Magazine, 03/08 "Bobbie Kalman's reputation for writing good quality non-fiction is reflected in these books with clear accurate writing supported by photographs and drawings that clarify and support the text. This series would be well suited for a wide range of readers. " —Resource Links, 02/08
