“Exciting and awesome.”
I am 8 and I think this book shows everything that is under the sea and there are some very interesting facts. I love under the sea because of all the animals and all the beautiful colours with the turquoise sea and and coral. I also love looking under the flaps because the drawings are great and there is just so much information. This is one of my favourites of all Usborne books.
“Full of fascinating facts”
Jack (age 6.5) has really enjoyed sharing this book. The information stored in this one book is amazing.
