Guess What is in the Ocean? by Nancy O'Neill is an interesting book for kids with a nautical theme. The book has four-line rhyming verses that give clues about places, people and things, and the answer is given with the aid of beautiful illustrations. The book is an interactive and learning experience for young readers and will make them aware of the ocean and things related to it. What makes the book very special is the fact that all the illustrations are done by kids from around the world, after selecting them through a worldwide art contest. The author's idea to make kids part of the book is indeed very refreshing and unique.

The book is lively and colorful, both in terms of verses and pictures. The author's way of introducing readers to ocean related topics is very charming and clever. Readers will glean a lot of information about the ocean and its inhabitants. It makes an excellent bedtime storybook and can also be used in school libraries for reference. The book is also useful to educators and teachers when it comes to teaching about the ocean. Educational books with illustrations are good for children to help them understand the topic better. It is also the best way to introduce them to new things and more vocabulary. The message to keep the ocean clean is also good as it covers the relevant topic of keeping the environment clean and saving Mother Nature.
