Coral Reefs

(New & Updated Edition)

by Gail Gibbons
This beautiful book presents a comprehensive look at life in a coral reef.

Marine biologists believe coral reefs existed 400 million years ago, well before the age of dinosaurs. Today, this active environment is home to about 200,000 kinds of brilliantly colored coral, plants, and animals.


"Organized topically, the information is presented in short paragraphs superimposed on busy watercolor-and-ink illustrations with helpful labels spread across double pages . . . most useful."
Kirkus Reviews

"Gibbons introduces a complex ecosystem with accessible words and inviting watercolor-washed pictures . . . exciting, action-filled pictures, including nighttime images of the reef teeming with moonlit predators, will draw children into the science facts."
