A jewel-toned parrotfish guides a young snorkeler through the stunning underwater realm of coral reefs. Readers encounter an amazing array of fish, sharks, worms, dolphins, turtles, and other creatures that live in and among the coral — and see how these various animals relate to one another. During this colorful tour, children also discover how reefs are formed and learn how these precious ecosystems protect our world by keeping the oceans healthy. Earle's fact-filled text and Matthews's exuberant illustrations are sure to appeal to curious youngsters!

Synopsis:

Earle takes children on an undersea journey to explore an amazing "underwater city." She explains the formation of coral reefs and provides information about the conditions needed for survival. In addition, the author introduces other animals that live in and near the reef and stresses the importance of protecting corals from pollution. Matthews's ink-and-gouache paintings bring the colors and variety of this habitat to life. The book also includes a simple experiment that demonstrates how "filter feeders" strain food from the water.
