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.
I read this picture book! It is fascinating!
The illos are amazing
