Well, I will be the first to admit that I have never really had much of an interest in coral reefs. To me they were just a thing in the ocean. I don't even know if I ever really considered them to be a plant, an animal, or even alive.
Needless to say, I really didn't know very much about them and what little I had learned way back when I was a kid had obviously been forgotten.
Not any more though. This book is full of information! And it is put into an easy and fun format. I definitely learned a lot while reading through this "comic."
That being said though, there was a lot to learn in this one little book. It is something I could read multiple times over and still have more in there to learn and to commit to memory. I was actually pretty surprised by how much information was put into this book and I am pretty sure it is only the very tip of the ice berg when it comes to information on coral reefs and the things that live within them.
This book though, is not entirely information. It is done in a comic book style. The "teacher" is a tiny little fish. He cracks quite a few jokes while telling you all about coral reefs which helps to keep the whole thing light and entertaining even though you are learning. And then there is the artwork. It is very bright and fun to look at.
All in all, Coral Reefs is a very nicely done book filled with a lot of information.
This review is based on a copy provided by the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
