Tiny Floating Coral

Unfold a world of discovery with this beautiful science-based picture book with a giant fold-out map

Tiny, Floating Coral tells the fascinating story of coral, tiny animals that create vast underwater cities where so many other sea creatures live, feed, hide and bring up their young. It starts with a tiny coral planula floating through the ocean in a soup of plankton, looking for a place to settle, divide and grow. The story progresses in a way that builds understanding for young children so they learn about the different types of coral, how they grow and start a colony to become part of the Great Barrier Reef, and why it needs protection. The book is packed with additional facts for confident readers, touching on KS1 primary science topics: life cycles, food chains, habitats, oceans and islands, and marine life. Delicate, colourful illustrations bring the story to life.

At the back of the book there is a giant fold-out world map that includes a fun I-Spy game to take children back into the book to find the sea creatures.

A brilliant addition to any home or school library with lots of detail that will be returned to again and again.

Look out for more science-based picture books in the Start Small, Think Big series including Small, Speckled Egg and Little, Brown Nut.

Ideal for 5 to 8 year olds and perfect for any home or school library.
