Sharks, Turtles & Underwater Things is written and illustrated by Joey and Ali Postma. In this ‘Dive Buddies 4 Life’ coloring book, you will find more than just adorable pictures to color. Each page has actual underwater photographs of the sea animals with a black and white replica to color. Along with the pictures of each animal, there is also a fun fact box that will help the young reader learn some unique traits and skills about the sea creature. How long can some sea lions hold their breath? What is a coral reef made of? How is a jellyfish different from other animal species? Do all turtles have hardened shells? How do sharks know when there are other animals near them?

Sharks, Turtles & Underwater Things by Joey and Ali Postma is a unique coloring book that I would recommend to anyone of any age. The gorgeous photographs are taken by the authors as they explore underwater life while diving. The illustrations are beautiful replicas of the pictures that can be colored by the reader. My absolute favorite thing about this book is the fact boxes. There are numerous things to learn from this diving duo’s underwater exploration. There are sea creatures that dart along the ocean floor rather than swimming, fish that look like another species, hermit crabs that swipe shells, and so much more. Anyone would enjoy this coloring book as they fill in the black and white pictures while learning something new. I can only hope the Postmas create more coloring books with such amazing images in the future!
