Down, Down, Down,
A Journey to the Bottom of the Sea

by Steve Jenkins

A Texas Bluebonnet Award NomineeSM

"'In this book, we'll descend from the ocean's surface to the sea floor and travel through one of the most extreme environments on earth." Steve Jenkins

Come dive in to explore life from the bright surface, to the darkest depths of the deepest ocean valleys. From surface tempests to calm ocean currents, life abounds. When you reach the bottom, you'll see fairytale-like creatures you've never imagined could be real! In fact, only a few scientists have ever even visited there before you. You'll be amazed when you see creatures that flash with their own bioluminescent light, those that dangle a lure at the end of a stalk to attract their prey, one that has a stomach that can stretch many times its normal size, and more.

Embedded into the full-page, cut and torn paper art collages on each page, you will find a side panel where you can read fascinating facts about life at each ocean level. You can find even more information is included in the endpapers. On the right side, you will see a measuring stick showing the depth and its name: The Surface, The Sunlit Zone, The Twilight Zone, The Dark Zone, The Abyssal Plain, Hydothermal Vents, and The Marianas Trench.

This is a book you will want to read again and again and use for research! Grab your teammates and take the plunge into the miracles of the ocean!
