Do you have any books with more pictures than words? The question came to me from a 12-year-old who is more into sports than reading. I knew exactly the book to recommend. This new title from National Geographic is filled with gorgeous photographs and enough words to explain what you are looking at. Here are a few sample pages that may have you racing out to get this one:



The 11 chapters are organized perfectly with such titles as Marine Mammals, Whales and Dolphins, Ocean Habitats, and 20 Ways You Can Protect The Ocean. These huge topics are given their proper due in the large format 9×12 inch book. Simply spectacular!

The official blurb for OCEAN ANIMALS: Who’s Who in the Deep Blue by Johnna Rizzo (ages 8-12) is an oversized book and it needs to be!  Featuring huge, stunning underwater photographs this book covers it all — from life in coral reefs to sharks and rays, to bizarre creatures of the deep and even sea birds — and all the favorites from Disney’s Finding Dory including, sea lions, octopus, beluga whales, whale sharks and of course clown fish and Dory herself — blue tangs!


I’ll be adding this one to my Blogging Anniversary Celebration Giveaway coming up soon. Your chance to be one of three winners of a stack of MG titles and a gift card. Details coming soon!
