The new Marine edition of the Curious Critters series by David FitzSimmons continues the award winning non-fiction series for kids with a colorful exploration of the nautical world. Including high resolution photographs of each animal, such as the Atlantic Horseshoe Crab, Roseate Spoonbill and Loggerhead Sea Turtle, FitzSimmons brings each animal to life with brief vignettes/monologues in the imagined voice of the animal, using creativity to impart some knowledge of their life and what part they play in the natural world. As well, at the end of the book FitzSimmons provides a further factual natural history of each animal along with a thumbnail picture of the full page entry in the heart of the book. Also included is a glossary to help kids understand any terms which might be more challenging. Curious Critters Marine is an amazing and excellent way to bring the wildlife of the oceans to life for your kids, marrying imagination and science in an unexpected and adventurous read.
