STEM education allows children to understand the world, but you have to keep them motivated and entertained during the learning process. One way to do this is to focus on a part of nature, and one such site with fascinating creatures is the Mariana Trench. Deep, Deep Down: The Secret Underwater Poetry of the Mariana Trench is an informative book on this topic. Lydia Lukidis will certainly arouse the interest of many young readers and the detailed images by Juan Calle Velez are striking. The book describes the unusual creatures that live there and includes data relating to their names and characteristics. It also has additional information about water pressure and other details, including a useful glossary.
Deep, Deep Down has engaging content that describes an unusual world. Lydia Lukidis's narration uses the medium of poetry. The book will arouse the curiosity of many young people wanting to learn more about our world's diversity. The images are appealing as Juan Calle Velez uses fascinating lighting in the illustrations, which have the effect of photos taken deep under the sea. The color choice is natural, with clear details of the marine animals. Something I particularly liked synthesizes the information by showing the depth at which some of the creatures can be found, which gives a more realistic perspective of their way of life. The book allows readers to learn about organisms you can't find elsewhere and demonstrates the importance of knowing more about the world in which we live.
