As soon as the patron handed me this book to return, I was transported right back to my old childhood bedroom. This was one of my favorite books to read. Judy and Ben are going to visit their Aunt and Uncle’s underwater lab. The two siblings learn about the lab and get to take a mini-sub out for a ride along the ocean floor. They see parrotfish and other types of fish, a torpedo ray, an octopus, and even a shark! As their adventure unfolds, the reader is given quick facts about the different ocean life. This story is a great introduction to the various animals that call the ocean their home. Don’t forget to check out the non-fiction area to learn more about oceans. Bonus: a few pages really do glow in the dark! Learn about laternfish among a shipwreck and then turn off the lights, to see them shine.
