The attractive read-aloud picture book This is the Reef by Miriam Moss (illustrated by Adrienne Kennaway; Lincoln Children’s Books, 2007) repeats the phrase “This is the place” as it visits a variety of plants and animals in the coral reef habitat. A few unique and specific animals, such as nudibranchs (a mollusk) and fish-eating flowers, gives unique content not found in many books for children. In the end matter, the author also mentions other fish to look for in the illustrations, and instructional paragraphs about the coral also follow. Thus it is an educational book for those interested in more information, and an entertaining read-aloud for others.
