Why does an octopus have eight arms?
Why does a crab run sideways?
Is a jellyfish made of jelly?
Find out the answers to these and many more fishy questions inside. Play search and find in the pictures, too. Can you spot the special fish?
Meet all kinds of slippery, shimmery, powerful and surprising sea creatures from around the world in this first book of the ocean to share with young children.
It is packed with facts about how different types of underwater animals eat, hunt and survive.
The book opens by explaining how different types of animals are able to breathe and survive underwater, and the different families to which they belong. Subsequent pages are dedicated to specific creatures, including sea turtles, whales, sharks, stingrays, and seahorses, and show varied life in specific habitats, such as a coral reef or deep sea bed. The Big Book of the Blue also explores the underwater world thematically, looking at animals in danger, learning how to spot creatures at the beach, and discovering how to do our part to save sea life. Beautiful and filled with fascinating facts, young, curious readers won’t be able to tear their eyes away from the page.
