Coral Reefs - Cities of the Ocean (Maris Wicks)

This is a great book! It is super easy to read. Even for me, someone who doesn't really seem to have a a knack for science facts. This is a graphic novel with all sorts of great information and amazing illustrations. It would be a fun book to have as a book draw during our life cycles unit.

The best news is they are working on more editions: dinosaurs, volcanoes, flying machines, bats and the solar system! I plan to read them all. This author also wrote Human Body Theatre, a well loved book in my classroom.

Goodreads summary:

Every volume of Science Comics offers a complete introduction to a particular topic--dinosaurs, coral reefs, the solar system, volcanoes, bats, flying machines, and more. These gorgeously illustrated graphic novels offer wildly entertaining views of their subjects. Whether you're a fourth grader doing a natural science unit at school or a thirty-year-old with a secret passion for airplanes, these books are for you!

This volume: in Coral Reefs, we learn all about these tiny, adorable sea animals! This absorbing look at ocean science covers the biology of coral reefs as well as their ecological importance. Nonfiction comics genius Maris Wicks brings to bear her signature combination of hardcore cuteness and in-depth science.
