Read full description of the books:
This attention-getting hardback book would draw the interest of anyone, but especially lovers of the deep sea.
This 37 page books has large pages, incredibly detailed color photos, and historical art and photographs. Complete with large print Table of Contents and Glossary, this informational books is teacher's dream when it comes to spotlighting text features. From captions to sidebars to diagrams and 8 transparent layovers, this is a non-fiction book lover's ideal read.
I love the specifics shared in the text as well: Only 10% of the ocean's floor has been mapped in detail, and sonar tools are helping with that; GPS satellites help to calculate a ship's position at sea; deep submergence vehicles can take researchers down to 4 miles; there was a Lost Palace of Alexandria from Cleopatra's day that is accessible now; and hydrothermal hotspots can create new life forms. The book ends with tips from deep sea research and conservation efforts about over-fishing. I kept thinking of all the careers young people would think about and become interested in as they read this book--from a marine biologist to a deep sea diver.
I found this book at Hastings as a Bargain Book, so teachers look for this one when you're out and add it to your library!
