Coral Reefs

Jason Chin. Roaring Brook/Flash Point/Porter, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-1-59643-563-6
As he did in Redwoods, Chin combines a thrilling imaginative journey with approachable, informative prose and naturalistic depictions of the wild. At the New York Public Library, a sandy-haired girl picks up the very book readers have in their hands, and as she reads, the library transforms into a coral reef. Completely submerged in light-infused water, the girl spies a sea turtle, witnesses the food chain in action, and observes how adaptation and cooperation enable coral reef animals’ survival. Finally, urban features rematerialize, and the girl appears dripping wet on the steps of the library. An immersive educational adventure that demonstrates both the power of reading and the wonder of nature. Ages 5–9. (Oct.)
