Review by Stacey

Above and Below: Sea and Shore is a children’s factual book about the sea and the surrounding area. It contains eight sections including:-

– Coastline
– Kelp Forest
– Polar Ocean/Antarctic/Arctic
– Estuary
– Tropical Shore
– Coral Reef
– Mangrove
– Deep Sea

Each section is one double-page and one extra flap to turn. The book contains lots of information starting with facts on the titled section and then the plants and animals that live in that section.

I love the way the book is set out and the easy-to-read and understand snippets of information alongside amazing illustrations that adorn each page. My favourite section has to be the Deep Sea with its unusual creatures that lurk in the dark including Vampire Squid, Giant Tube Worm, and ‘Casper’ Octopus.

This is a fun, informative, and educational book. I was intrigued and engaged the whole way through. It is a book that children can dip into when they need to for something like a school project or just to learn something new and be amazed. If you have a child (or know one) that craves knowledge then this would be the perfect book for them.
