This book is about learning more about the sea and that all things are circular and come together and the sea that we see is the sea that we get food from. I liked this book because I like the sea and it was fun to see the chain of things that relates back to one another. The grade level would be 2 grade.

This book would be great in a classroom to teach children about the ocean food chain and how that comes back to us. It also is a great example of a book that rhymes.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 188322070X, Paperback)

Parents and elementary science teachers alike will appreciate the way the marine food chain comes to light in this lighthearted book. The heroes are -- plankton, floating free, zillions of creatures alive in the sea, making their food from the light of the sun that shines on the sea that feeds us.The plankton feeds the shrimp which feeds bass -- a fish with a hungry look what saw the shrimp, but not the hook. And on up the food chain to the girl with a sandy pail, each verse introduces a new link and then connects it to everything else. Among the verses are interspersed factual statements about the marine food web, enhancing the value of this book for science teachers as well as language arts teachers.

This cumulative rhyme portrays the ocean's intricate food web, with each verse introducing another hungry creature, from the tiny plankton up to a grateful family of humans.
