The lively and fun Smithsonian Young Explorers: Oceans covers the science of ocean movement, pollution, and fascinating facts on marine life. From profiles on the Pacific to waves and tsunamis, young readers will love to learn about the basics of the ocean. And of course, all the cutest sea creatures (sea otters and dolphins!) and the fiercest (great white sharks and poisonous jellyfish!) and all their ocean friends are covered in detail for budding ocean explorers. Once readers get their feet wet in the world’s oceans, they can continue their education by assembling the included 130-piece floor puzzle of colorful marine life. The puzzle and included poster give children extra opportunities to learn about the ocean and engage them in the sciences.
