I really enjoyed this book!. I chose another Seymour Simon book just because I really enjoy his style. One of the reasons I like this book is for the way it is written. Simon makes coral reefs relevant and relatable to the reader with his words. For example, when he is describing life inside of a coral reef, he compares it to a city with many types of citizens, something a reader can relate to even if they have never seen a coral reef. He then details the many citizens of the reef and their jobs inside of it. Another thing i like about this book is the pictures. The pictures are very detailed and represent the story well. For example, when Simon is describing the 3 types of reefs, he pictures each one next o the description, giving th reader an accurate visual. The purpose of this book is to inform about coral reefs and how they develop and sustain life. ( )
