Marine Science for Kids is a colorful, comprehensive, friendly guide to exploring the underwater world. While including all the ocean animals kids love, it delves much deeper into the complete science of aquatic study, including geology, chemistry, and biology in both salt- and freshwater environments and more accurately reflecting the real-world study and practice of aquatic science. Kids discover how and why oceans move, and learn the answers to questions such as "Why is the ocean blue?" They meet cool creatures including sharks and rays, penguins and other seabirds, whales and dolphins, squids and octopuses, and many more. They discover some of the most pressing challenges facing marine environments but are left feeling hopeful that they can use their talents to make a difference. Real-life marine scientists share what inspires them every day so kids can learn more about these exciting careers. Hands-on, cross-curricular activities in each chapter—including science experiments, arts and crafts, edible projects, and group games—make learning fun.

An interactive introduction to working with animals Zoology for Kids invites the next generation of zoologists to discover the animal kingdom through clear, entertaining information and anecdotes, lush color photos, hands-on activities, and peer-reviewed research. Young minds are introduced to zoology as a science by discussing animals' forms, functions, and behaviors as well as the history behind zoos and aquariums. Related activities include baking edible animal cells, playing a dolphin-echolocation game, and practicing designing an exhibit. Young readers can peek into the world of zookeepers and aquarists, veterinarians, wildlife researchers, and conservationists as they "train" their friends, mold a tiger's jawbone, and perform field research in their own backyard. This engaging resource provides readers with new knowledge, a healthy respect for the animal kingdom, and the idea that they can pursue animal-related careers and make a difference to preserve and protect the natural world.
