Summer is just around the corner and the promise of long days filled with picnics, swimming and trips to the seaside lie ahead.

The Coral Kingdom
From shimmering shoals of fish to the vivid colours of the oceans coral gardens, this book celebrates the coral reef. Beautiful illustrations take the young reader on an underwater adventure, introducing them to the wonders of our planet’s hidden treasures.
Written in gentle rhyme and with intricate illustrations, we explore the diverse creatures and plants that make-up this ecosystem. With each turn of the page, we are introduced to ‘sea stars, mantas, garden eels and more. We meet turtles swimming over a sunken boat that has been swallowed up by the coral and creatures of this watery world.
As we near the end of our coral reef story, we learn about the threat of the warming seas and how we can help ‘lend a hand’ in protecting this ocean treasure. The young reader is called to action to ensure that this natural wonder is not lost on our watch.
This delightful book, written by Laura Knowles and illustrated by Jennie Webber, would make a great addition to your home library and I highly recommend adding this title to your summer reading list.
