Our Review Panel says...

Seas & Oceans: An Animated Atlas covers information all about habitats belonging to our Blue Planet and the dangers posed to our oceans. The book includes alternating pages which refer back to a colourful map of the world, to ensure children understand the geography of the information they are gaining. On these beautifully illustrated maps, there are enlarged images of animals, to assist children’s visualisation of their position on our earth.

Information is presented in small, easy-to-read chunks, but there are also many clever tools to help less able readers access new knowledge. For example, some pages include a scale comparing animals to day-to-day objects (a whale and a double-decker bus). There is also an App available to accompany the book, which you can download and use to scan the pages to watch an animated scene that brings the images to life. Children can watch, listen and learn through 50 videos and 20 animated scenes. What better way to immerse children in new learning?

This stunning and modern take on an Atlas is an absolute must for every child’s bookshelf. I have no doubt its interactive pages will inspire many young marine biologists.
