Aquatic Animals & Habitats: Salt Water
A photographic sneak peak at the extraordinary duties of aquarists as they not only feed and care for animals, but help to conserve whole species. From the “crocodile’s dentist,” to the “mongoose spa,” some animals need a little help from their friends! Animal Partners takes a whimsical look at the symbiotic relationships of animals.  An orphaned sea lion is found and raised at The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, California. When released, he keeps swimming back to the Center, just like a lost dog finding his way home. Based on real events, follow Astro to his current home at the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. This heartwarming photographic journal describes a critically ill sea turtle as she is nursed back to health at a Sea Turtle Hospital, and then, she is returned to her home in the sea! Discover how deep-sea animals survive in the dark ocean habitat and how they attract prey or repel predators. Enjoy a day in one of the most dynamic habitats on earth—the salt marsh. Fun-to-read, rhyming verse introduces readers to hourly changes in the marsh as the tide comes and goes. The true story of Honey Girl, the Hawaiian monk seal, will captivate readers as the endangered seal is rescued, rehabilitated, released, and becomes a mom once again.
The South Sea’s top predator is revealed in this fishy tale of who eats whom! Join Delfina the dolphin as she imagines that she becomes other sea animals: a fish, a sea turtle, a pelican, an octopus, a shark, and even a manatee! An adaptation of “This is the House that Jack Built,” the story follows polar bears, walruses, seals, narwhals, and belugas as they chase each other in the arctic waters. Follow along as Kali the orphaned polar bear is rescued and then cared for by his keepers at the Alaska Zoo and the Buffalo Zoo. Little Gray loved his lagoon and didn’t want to migrate north to a food-filled sea. What happens along the way and how does Little Gray save his mother’s life? Leena, her mom, and dog Bobie hop in the boat for a night of citizen science counting horseshoe crabs on the beach. Learn valuable facts as they survey these ancient animals. Nursery rhymes go nautical, from sea to shining sea, in this fanciful book of familiar children’s verse with a twist. Ideal for read-aloud, this book will bring laughter and joy…and just maybe the smell of salt water in the air!
Hidden in forests of kelp, tucked under a shelf of coral, and floating in dark depths, the denizens of the underwater world wait for readers to discover them. Seasons change in the ocean much as they do on land. In fanciful form, children learn about plants and animals that are joined through the mix of seasons, food webs, and habitats beneath the waves.  Octavia just cannot get her colors right when she tries to shoot her purple ink cloud to protect herself! What will happen when a hungry shark shows up? What child hasn’t wondered what it would be like to be an animal? After a trip to an aquarium, Oliver decides he wants to be a sea otter. But being an otter isn’t easy for a human. What’s an otter, we mean a boy to do? Penelope Parker lives with penguins! Short ones, tall ones; young and old—the penguins are from all over the Southern Hemisphere including some that live near the equator! Do the penguin antics prove too much for her to handle? Children count and then compare and contrast ten different penguin species as they learn geography. Compare and contrast these polar animals through stunning photographs. A hurricane forms over ocean. Humans board up windows, gather food and supplies, and then wait for the storm to arrive. But what do wild animals do?
Marine scientist Ellen Prager introduces us to fascinating and bizarre animals that use slime to survive in the ocean. When Shark Baby’s egg case tears loose in a storm, he travels ocean habitats to learn what kind of shark he is.
Although sharks and dolphins may look similar they are actually very different types of animals. Author Kevin Kurtz guides readers through the differences and similarities through simple nonfiction text. A companion book to Mary Alice Monroe’s <em>Swimming Lessons</em>, this photo journal explains the nesting cycle of sea turtles and natural life along the southeastern coast. When a diamondback terrapin lays eggs in a girl’s sandbox, she becomes a “turtle-sitter.” She learns about these animals and makes an important contribution to their survival. This soothing bedtime story explains in simple, poetic language how ten different marine mammals—animals that live in water but breathe air—sleep in the ocean. When tiny turtle breaks free of his shell, he’s ready to set out for his new home. But when a wrong turn takes him off tack, how will he find where that home is?
