How Deep Is the Ocean?

(3) K-3 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. Illustrated by Eric Puybaret. A trip down through the ocean's zones to a geothermal vent is imagined in a second-person narrative rich in scientific description. The you-are-there text allows readers to imagine themselves observing marine life and the pressures, temperatures, and light levels at each layer. The cool, deep-ocean-hued illustrations portray two children in a submersible amidst a host of named organisms. Experiment appended. Websites. Glos.
