Caldecott Honor–winning Steve Jenkins provides a top-to-bottom look at the ocean, from birds and waves to thermal vents and ooze. Half the earth’s surface is covered by water more than a mile deep, but most of this watery world is a mystery to us. In fact, more people have stood on the surface of the moon than have visited the deepest spot in the ocean. Come along as we travel down, down, down, from the surface to the bottom of the sea. Along the way you can see jellyfish that flash like a neon sign, creatures with teeth so big, they can’t close their mouths, and even a squid as long as a bus, which battles to the death with a sperm whale, the largest predator on earth. It’ll be a journey you won’t soon forget!

We had a large group of children of both kindergarteners and first graders and they all unanimously loved it.The pictures kept them enthralled. I read bits of the text here and there, and, though I’d anticipated that...

This book is BRILL-I-ANT! The things this man (Steve Jenkins) can do with cut paper are unbelievable - truly against the natural order of things. How does he do it? How does he make flat paper into vivid living breathing creatures??? That aside, even with subpar illustrations, just the format, ar...
