UPDATE: My son has now had his THIRD copy of this book for four months. Ten pages have already detached from the binding and have been taped back in. I suspect more pages will be falling out soon. Great book, but I think the company needs to make sure the binding is more secure for future publishings. I'm knocking a star off my review based on construction alone.
What REALLY took the book to the next level was the interconnectedness - when the book mentioned that sea turtles eat jellyfish, I could flip over to the jellyfish page. Also, when the spotted dolphins were introduced, it gave a nod back to the orcas (a type of dolphin), and then on the next page showed several more types of dolphins. Of course the clown fish + anemone symbiosis featured on the cover was nice, as was the sea ray + remora.
Note: There is a world map at the back of the book - it might be nice to jump there at the beginning of each chapter to show where in the world that particular ocean is.
Also: We have only done one read through so far, but have had no issues with the binding.
The photos and information provided is wonderful and I've learned quite a bit while reading this with my son.
