From School Library Journal:

Grade 1–3—The span of activities occurring in a reef is seamlessly presented in a "day in the life of" picture-book format. Each easy-to-read sentence is packed with information. Like the text, the paper-cutout illustrations combine simplicity and sophistication. Utterly gorgeous, they amplify the material presented on every page. Vibrant reds, purples, golds, and black and white pop off the page. A lime green moray eel glides across a spread as it stalks fish in the dark by smell. Why does it ignore a sleeping parrot fish?, the narrative asks. Readers see a muted blue fish on the page next to the eel and learn that it oozes out a filmy body covering that disguises its color and masks its odor while it sleeps. The book concludes with two pages of facts about coral reefs, a list of famous reefs, and the current and future threats to these endangered habitats. The endpapers silhouetting the reef animals in shades of blue and black are inviting and haunting at the same time. Outstanding.—Frances E. Millhouser, formerly at Chantilly Regional Library, Fairfax County, VA END
