The oceans may well be Earth’s final frontier. These dark and sometimes mysterious waters cover 71 percent of the surface area of the globe and have yet to be fully explored. Under the waves, a watery world of frail splendor, foreboding creatures, vast mountains, and sights beyond imagination awaits. Now this powerful resource has been developed for three educational levels!

  • Grasp a deeper understanding of the ocean tides, waves, and currents
  • Explore the vast world of giant squids and other sea “monsters”
  • Discover the impact of weather systems and the Great Flood on Earth’s land and seas

Learning about the oceans and their hidden worlds can be exciting and rewarding — the abundance and diversity of life, the wealth of resources, the latest discoveries, and the simple mysteries that have intrigued explorers and scientists for centuries. A better understanding of our oceans ensures careful stewardship of their grandeur and beauty for future generations, and leads to a deeper respect for the delicate balance of life that God created on planet Earth.

Great book
Review by debbie
My non-loving Science daughter has loved the General Science 1/2 series, especially with the Academy add-on!
Used For High School Science
Review by Betsy
I like to mix-and-match resources to create my own science curriculum. We used this as part of our high school biology curriculum. What a wonderful resource for all of us! One of my elementary aged children also enjoyed and learned from portions of the book, though some sections were too advanced for elementary use. I think that is a great benefit of the books in this series. Students can glean some knowledge and understanding and continue to add to that base as the years go by. This book will definitely be revisited again and again by our family.
I love the refreshingly Biblical approach regarding creation and the age of the earth as well. My oldest child appreciated that as well. Other publishers left him gagging on the evolution propaganda.
We like to pull this book out before beach trips too. We always learn something new!
Love it
Review by margarita
I know these are for older kids but you can use them for younger kids as well. They have different levels you read that’s good for all ages. The pictures are amazing. My son likes to read this for fun.
Ocean book
Review by Carolyn
We are learning Oceanography and Marine Sciences this year, and we've been using this as our Spine for the year. Sooo much great information! I'm loving how it constantly points you back to the Bible. It's so freeing to be able to read a book and not have to "proofread" it as you are reading, taking out the evolution paragraphs and inserting truth on my own. It's just WRITTEN with truth already!! Master Books knocked it out of the park again! Thank you!

Review by Jessica
This is a great book! We have a few different ocean books but I love that this is written from a biblical perspective. The photography is great as well.
Breathtaking photos
Review by Evelyn
Discover the beauty of the deep! These pictures are breathtaking! A perfect coffee table book! This entire series is so great! I love that it is scientifically accurate and zero evolution, or other non-proven theories, being taught as fact. I can feel comfortable handing this to my child. I don't have to worry about secular indoctrination agendas. Wonderful layout and pictures bring the subject to life! So thankful for this entire series!
This is a favorite in our house
Review by Shelly
The ocean is a favorite topic and this book does not disappoint. Absolutely beautiful pictures and full of wonderful information. Love it!
Favorite of the Wonders of Creation series!
Review by DW
This book is a great intro to oceanography, and covered such a wide range of topics. This was our favorite of the series - the beautiful pictures made you want to get underwater in God’s magnificent creation! We used it as part of our 7th grade daughter’s Earth Science course. If your child doesn’t think they like Science, these books are a perfect way to explore in a much more enjoyable manner!
Excellent addition to ocean unit study
Review by Phylicia
This book exemplifies why I love Masterbooks. Upon gathering books for my Kindergartener's Ocean unit study, I found myself searching for books with stunning photos that captivate attention, but didn't include evolutionary falsehoods on every page. This book was the perfect mix!
great book
Review by Dena
I really like the way the quizzes and tests are written in this test as there are more multiple choice options. I have a kid who struggles with writing so it's nice to not have to fight so much with him on that with this book.
