My thoughts:  The "Welcome to the Museum" series is an educational delight. Information and illustrations are simply "spot-on" in accuracy and will capture the attention of readers young and old. This is an oversized book and a bit heavy. So your "littlest" reader may have difficulty holding it. But do show it to everyone and explore it's depths of delight.

I recently saw a documentary on TV and it featured the oceans. Fascinating! Now there is a vast amount of information and pictures to feast upon in Oceanarium anytime you want to dip into it.

Sectioned by types of sea life the book explains with just enough information but doesn't overwhelm the younger or casual reader. The illustrations are beautifully done. The basis of the books seems to be to education the reader to the variety and vastness of the oceans of the world, instill a respect and love for the oceans, and in the end encourage one toward a goal of ecological responsibility.

I have reviewed other "Welcome to the Museum Series" titles and highly recommend this series. Including: Animalium: Welcome to the MuseumDinosaurium: Welcome to the MuseumFungarium: Welcome to the MuseumBotanicum: Welcome to the Museum.

About the book: Welcome to the museum that is always open to explore... Step inside the pages of Oceanarium to enjoy the experience of a museum from the comfort of your own home.

This stunning offering from the Welcome to the Museum series guides readers around the world's oceans, from sandy shorelines to the deepest depths. Get up close and personal with giant whale sharks, tiny tropical fish, majestic manatees and so much more, travel the world from frozen Arctic seas to shimmering coral reefs, and learn why it is so important that we protect our oceans.

Intricate artwork by rising star Teagan White combines with expert text by education officer Loveday Trinick from the National Marine Aquarium, UK. A stunning exploration of the underwater world, and a must-have for any animal enthusiast. Click Amazon to see interior
