The Secret Life of Oceans (Stars of Nature #4) (Hardcover)
Did you know that blue whales are the largest creatures on earth ? And that corals are actually tiny creatures?
Let Tia the green turtle guide you through this beautiful first guide to oceanlife around the globe. Learn about ocean homes and who lives where, big creatures (whales and whale sharks), little creatures (baby animals to zooplankton), incredible journeys, sea weather, and how to help save our oceans.
Read magical folklore sea stories from around the planet, too. Tia has learnt much on her travels and she will be a great guide for young readers, perhaps inspiring them to develop a lifelong love of life under the ocean.
Following on from The Secret of Trees, The Secret Life of Bees, and The Secret Life of Birds, Oceans is the next book in the series. Sumptuous and detailed illustrations have pride of place in this magical book that mixes natural history with a splash of fantasy, creating a book to be pored over time and again.
