★★★THE REVIEWS ARE IN!★★★
"Gibbons's penchant for creating interesting, informative nonfiction books for young children appears to be fathomless. Bright and cheerful describe the watercolor pictures, and they are in total complement to the brief text on each page. Clean in appearance, the book offers insightful information in a manner as fresh as a sea breeze. It lends itself naturally to units on where and how others live. Children will want to be Surrounded by Sea as soon as they spy the colorful dust jacket. —School Library Journal
