The Big Book of the Blue

We rated this book:


The ocean is an complex and fascinating place. It’s also a domain we know little about; we know more about the moon. There are so many fish, and mammals and creatures in the sea that it’s impossible to put them all in one book, but the Big Book of the Blue feels like it comes pretty close. It’s the third in the series, after the popular Big Book of Bugs and Big Book of Beasts.

It can be overwhelming, trying to comprehend the rich diversity and life of the oceans of our world, so the Big Book of the Blue breaks it up for us, with double-pages of color and detail and complexity on coral reefs, sharks, sea turtles, sea snakes, and jellyfish, to name a few. It also breaks down “Ocean Families,” “Fins and Flippers,” and “Gills and Blowholes.”

The book is simply a stunning work of art. You can read it for the information and details about ocean life and learn a lot, or you can just appreciate the artwork and skill that has gone into each page, which is full of the beauty and complexity of ocean life, leaving readers – be they young or old – completely entranced.
