Did you know that some corals are named for being look-alikes? The mushroom coral has an umbrella-like shape. Grooves on the surface of the brain coral give it the appearance of the important human organ. Beginning readers just might get the urge to name the corals in this book.
Colourful corals come to life with a photographic search-and-find feature that explores the animal's anatomy and ocean habitat. Corals are more than just rocks or plants. These ocean animals can move and stretch their tentacles to sting tiny animals to eat. Emergent readers will discover how corals spawn and grow into huge reefs that become home to many animals. Vibrant photos and simple text will fascinate young readers. A search-and-find feature reinforces key vocabulary with photo clues and an answer key.
