The Coral Kingdom by Laura Knowles

cover130533-mediumThe Coral Kingdom by Laura Knowles is a beautifully illustrated picture book about coral reefs, as well as a pretty strong call to save them.

The story part of the book is a nice sing song of the animals and colors of the reef. The back matter is all about what is coral, how we can save it, and how we can save our planet. Told in a loose rhyming scheme, the reader is brought into the wonders of this undersea world. The watercolor pictures illustrate with beautiful colors of the reef and the life around it. There are lots of sea creatures to find as well as unusual things like boats that have become part of the reef over time. A call is made to save this beautiful space.

The book ends with some action ideas for sustaining the reef and how it is losing it’s color. The message is clear, but I never felt like I was being beat over the head with it. The case is made gently and with beautiful art.

I received an ARC Quarto Publishing Group via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
