What is a coral reef actually made of? What microscopic creatures take shelter in the coral and become its food? Which coral reef resident has stinging tentacles? And which huge creature visits the reef to have its dead skin and parasites nibbled away by a fishy clean-up crew? Packed with facts, core-curriculum information, and fantastic photographs that support the text, this title takes readers on a mini safari around a coral reef. Like piecing together a jigsaw puzzle, readers will discover how the living things that make this habitat their home depend on each other and their environment for survival.

Geo Librarian Blog Review of Welcome to the Coral Reef

This gorgeous book about coral reefs makes for an interesting read, but the real winner is the amazing illustrations that give the reader a glimpse into a fascinating animal habitat. With coral being a living creature it makes sense that coral reefs are always growing. The problem is that they are being destroyed much faster than they can be built. And the incredible biodiversity found among coral reefs is astounding and irreplaceable. This book takes a look at several of the elements that make up this special ecosystem. The book covers what coral is, what are sea anemones, how birds, turtles, and whales make use of the coral reef environment. A food web diagram, glossary, index, as well as additional resources are also included.
