Scholastic Discover More: Ocean and Sea (Scholastic Discover More) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A new-generation reference book about our planet's most amazing, least explored environment, for kids used to surfing and swiping.

We know more about Mars than we do about the oceans that cover 70 percent of Earth's surface and sustain life on our blue planet. Yet every child is fascinated by sharks, tsunamis, palm-fringed beaches, coral reefs and superstrange-looking deep-sea fish. This book is a genuine contribution to our understanding of the world's last wilderness. It introduces ocean water, geology, tides, waves, and coastlines, then moves on to a stunning catalogue of ocean life, from the smallest sponge to the largest whale. Beautiful original photographs and dramatic modern graphics are combined with up-to-the-minute factual knowledge from marine biologists, conservationists, and explorers. This is a learning journey: The human impact on the ocean is explained and challenged, actions are suggested, and young readers are introduced to a world of information and activity outside the book to pursue their newfound interest in mankind's most fascinating and threatened environment.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

This compelling addition to the award-winning Scientists in the Field series explores the leatherback sea turtle's remarkable natural history and recounts the extraordinary efforts by scientists trying to save them.

Synopsis:

Dr. Kimberly Stewart, also known as the Turtle Lady of St. Kitts, is already waiting at midnight when an 800-pound leatherback sea turtle crawls out of the Caribbean surf and onto the sandy beach. The mother turtle has a vital job to do: dig a nest in which she will lay eggs that will hatch into part of the next generation of leatherbacks. With only one in a thousand of the eggs for this critically endangered species resulting in an adult sea turtle, the odds are stacked against her and her offspring. Join the renowned author and photographer Steve Swinburne on a journey through history to learn how sea turtles came to be endangered, and what scientists like Kimberly are doing to save them.
