Djuren i vattnet Animals in the Water

Animals #2

There is a whole world to explore underneath the surface – dive in and you will see! Read about the strange life of the slimy eel, what happens on the coral reef, and which fish is the messiest in Scandinavia.

A humorous and educational non-fiction about everything living in water. Learn about life beneath the surface, visit lakes, creeks, and oceans all over Scandinavia. Plankton, seaweed, algae, and sticklebacks, old pikes and herrings in shoals. No one can engage their readers quite like Sarah Sheppard. Facts and humor blend in perfect harmony as she teaches the reader about the lives of animals and nature.

Very well-made and [Animals in the Water] deserves readers of all ages, not only the kindergarteners it is designed for.”
