Written by Catherine Barr

Illustrated by Brendan Kearney

Key Stage 2 Ecological and Environmental Interest - Non Fiction The Natural World

LoveReading View on A Turtle's View of the Ocean Blue

An inspiring and beautiful book which also carries an important conservation message

A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month May 2021

A beautiful picture book full of fascinating illustrations that repay hours of close looking, this is also an astonishing fact-filled tour of the amazing five oceans on our planet. Using the turtle as a guide, Catherine Barr gives readers an introduction to the importance of all the oceans to everyone and then looks closely at the special features of each of the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic and Southern Oceans. Here, and in all the further spreads which cover How Oceans Work, Ocean Habitats and Ocean Wonders before a final, heartful section on Save Our Seas, Barr presents all the information in brief, carefully written paragraphs which convey enough to be wholly satisfying without overwhelming readers with too much information. The whole is an inspiring and beautiful book which also carries an important conservation message.
