Book Review- Deep, Deep Down: The Secret Underwater Poetry of the Mariana Trench

I received the ARC for Deep, Deep Down: The Secret Underwater Poetry of the Mariana Trench

from the author Lydia Lukidis for an honest review. Published by Capstone, Young Readers.

What did I like about his book?

Firstly, I am an ex-scuba diver and can relate to the underwater world. Although I don’t write in verse, the rhythm and rhyme flowed well when read aloud. There’s also a great use of alliteration. I love how the author explains complex topics that children can understand. ‘Water pressure is like a thick heavy blanket with one thousand hands pressed down.’

A perfect book for the classroom with backmatter that matters.

A thumbs up to the illustrator Juan Calle, a former biologist turned science illustrator.

This book is a gem for science education for school children, college students, and adults.

As a child, I spent my summer holidays by the swamp catching tadpoles and other creepy critters or running after wild animals. I wanted to become a veterinarian when I grew up. But destiny turned my life around - I moved to Italy, where I obtained my BS in Environmental Sciences and Territorial Management. When not working in our family-run business, I write, read, play with clay, doodle, and go on scavenger hunts in the woods, followed by my six cats.
