The Reader's Digest Young Families' Our Mysterious Ocean (ages 8-12), has "see-through" pages that show what types of sea life thrive at various depths. Journey from the sunlit zone where coral grows, to the "twilight zone" in the deep ocean and the "abyss," more than two miles below the ocean's surface, where rattails and tripod fish roam. This is not a greatly detailed book, but there's enough information for an intriguing journey to the bottom of the sea (even kids under the recommended age of eight will enjoy the images with the help of an older reader to guide them).
