Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Coral reefs are a high-interest subject for many grade-schoolers, and this title opens with dramatic facts that will grab readers: home to 25-percent of marine life, they are some of the most threatened ecosystems in the world. Part of the Eye to Eye with Endangered Habitats series, this highly readable title, heavily illustrated with color photos and maps, packs in exciting geology, biology, and ecology as it makes technical information accessible, even in the captions that accompany the beautifully detailed, close-up pictures. The inviting, informal text includes some direct questions to readers that teachers may also want to use to start discussions about marine life in all its fascinating diversity. Throughout, the author emphasizes the threats to fragile reef systems, and readers will want to follow-up by heeding the suggestions for everyday ways that they can address pollution and climate change. The final pages include a glossary and list of websites for further research.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2010 Booklist"
