Oceanology Handbook: A Course for Underwater Explorers review

Oceanology Handbook: A Course for Underwater Explorers review & giveawaySummer is a great time for young adventurers to brush up on their knowledge.Those wishing to unlock the secrets of the deep blue sea will find all sorts of treasure in this wonderful book.

The Oceanology Handbook: A Course For Underwater Explorers
By Professor Pierre Aronnax

From Press Release: Explore the ocean’s wonders, real and . . . imagined? Dive into this essential handbook to discover some lesser-known secrets of the sea.

Among the book’s special features:
– four pages of stickers featuring sea creatures, ships, treasure, and diving equipment
– activities for the reader on nearly every spread
– a pull-out letter from Professor Aronnax to Zoticus
– a removable Beaufort scale chart of the winds — an indispensable resource for seafarers!

The Oceanology Handbook is a beautiful book filled with interesting facts, gorgeous imagery and the peaceful colors of the ocean. We have several other “Ology” books that were bought at our school’s book fair and we have  always enjoyed reading them over ad over. There is so much information in each book but it isn’t overwhelming. The books are written in easy to digest chapters that are dotted with notes and observations from the “professor”. It is a fun way to learn something new and a great way to get the kids thinking.

Pie loved learning morse code and writing secret messages for me to decode! I like that almost every page has an “Activity” box to encourage a deeper understanding of the chapters.

 

Oceanology Handbook: A Course for Underwater Explorers review & giveaway

A book that you and your child can go back to again and again, it gives you a nice starting point to see which parts of ocean history your child might like to learn more about. I think this book would make a wonderful gift for either a boy or girl. Any of the wonderful Ology books would.
