Book Review: Amazing World Sea Creatures: Encounter 20 Amazing Light-Up Animals by Lee Martin

Amazing World Sea Creatures: Encounter 20 Amazing Light-Up Animals by Lee Martin is a children's non fiction book that explores the amazing creatures that live in the deep ocean. From the lanternfish, to the Atolla jellyfish, to the glowing bioluminescent octopus, the ocean is filled with animals that gleam and glow. This book leads readers on a journey to see how these living lights use bioluminescence, fluorescence, and symbiotic bacteria to light up! Along with the information on  twenty strange and amazing marine animals, the book also includes glow-in-the-dark stickers!

Amazing World Sea Creatures: Encounter 20 Amazing Light-Up Animals is an interesting and informative book that will capture the interest of many readers. The creatures that live in the depths of the oceans are strange to us, but nature has provided them with skills and tools to help them survive. This book explains those tools, how they work, and the lives of these unique animals in a way that is accessible and high interest.  I think the photograph are simply stunning, and the graphics showing details like location range, size comparison, and more help make the facts offer easier to understand and put into context. I can see this book sparking further research and curiosity about sea life, and nature in general. The book does not give comprehensive information on each creature, how could it, but it offers enough information to satisfy middle grade readers, and all of those interested in the subject. Since I had a digital copy I did not have the stickers, so those were not included in my review, although I am sure the are an incentive to purchase for the target audience.
