The latest title in Vassiliki Tzomaka's 'Extreme Environments' series takes young readers on a gloriously illustrated journey through the world's reefs to discover the remarkable diversity of life they contain.
Across thirteen unique locations in tropical and cold waters, children will discover the rich variety of marine life that relies on coral reefs for survival, from corals and turtles, to fish, crustaceans and marine mammals. The book ends with a focus on the challenges facing coral reefs today and small ways that they can help protect these environments.
By taking a scientific approach to illustrated non-fiction, Dart and Dive Across the Reef raises awareness of the marine world in a way that makes the subject fascinating, engaging and deeply impressive to young children.
