The ocean is incredibly fascinating. The amount of water, how it moves, and the life that is inside it. These books cover almost every part of the ocean in one way or another. Some are fiction, to add a story while learning, while others are non-fiction and give the facts. They are books that your children, especially ocean lovers, will be engrossed in.
