The Kingfisher Young People's Book of Oceans offers a comprehensive look into every aspect to do with the seas, from habitats and evolution, to mythology and human's history at sea. The book covers so much more than a generic science book and is clearly linked to Geography, History and RE, due to the content it chooses to cover.
A particularly memorable feature to this book is that it is tremendously graphic-based. This aspect of the book means that the subject can be examined, dissected and evaluated completely, lifting the author out of the usual constraints of using pictures or illustrations, overall giving the book a feel that everything has been planned to great detail.
Year 6 could use the book to its true potential, but can be easily appreciated by the younger years. In terms of oceanic studies, this is the first - and perhaps last - purchase required for a teachers resource file.
