This book literally discussed the ins and outs of many different animals that live in the sea. It starts with a brief overview of bones and the endoskeleton versus the exoskeleton. It also talks about crabs, the coral reef, and jellies (not 'jellyfish' because they aren't technically fish). The book then talked about animals that live so deep in the ocean that they make their own light. Then it switched to animals who spend most of their life on land, seals. The last six pages of the book are the most interesting because one two-page spread has drawings of fish and the next spread has their bones showing through. The last two-page spread is a chart about skeletons, backbones, and type of animal.
Although the book had pretty pictures and interesting aspects the layout was very sporadic without much coherence. ( )

"Sea Bones" by Bob Barner is an informative book about the ocean and sea creatures. each page has big easy words to read and then smaller facts are listed about the subject of the bigger words. Illustrations are colorful and kid-friendly. This book would great for students who are interested in the ocean or for an ocean themed lesson. ( )

This book was very informational about the sea creatures of the oceans and very descriptive. For example, "Jellies have no bones, and no brains, and they go wherever the ocean current takes them." The illustrations looked like they were drawn right on the page which is very unusual and interesting for kids to see because it makes them think that they can do the same, or gives them the motivation to do the same. The overall idea of this book was to inform the readers about all of the magical creatures of the ocean, ( )

Great story for teaching ocean animals and different parts of the ocean. Primary age students will love the colored pictures. The information is simple, but teaches details about the ocean, ocean animals and different parts of the ocean. ( )
