Veteran science writer Collard explains the unique spawning event and provides some background about coral and the sea creatures that share the reef. Not appropriate for younger than fourth maybe third grade due to reproductive language.
This book is about the coral reef in the Australia.
A tale of how the coral sea is at night and all the creatures you can see. Includes a table of content, index, glossary, internet site, and more book.
In late spring, a few days after the full moon, when the sun finally sets, it’s when the show begins. Sneed depicts how life in the Coral Sea, on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, is, how it begins, and how it ends. From each little type of sea creature to the biggest ones such as whales and sharks, his words take you to the bottom of the sea, where all these happens, as if you were there. Three-dimensional illustrations made of paper painted and sculpted by Robin Brickman provide the final touch for the readers’ journey on this one night in the Coral Sea.
"In 1980, scientists discovered that hundreds of corals on the Great Barrier Reef participate in a mass spawning event. Science author Sneed B. Collard III explains coral reefs, the coral larvae's perilous journey through the sea to their home on the reef, and the animals that depend on this ecosystem for their survival. Intricate cut-paper illustrations capture the eye-catching colors of this underwater world."

This book introduces the coral reef, different corals and animals that live around the coral. It is about the mass spawning of the coral in the springtime. Beginning with the release of sperm and eggs into the Coral Sea, the book describes the fertilization, the larval stage and the metamorphosis from larvae to coral polyp.
The pictures in this book would be great examples of collage or watercolor in an art class. This book doesn't cover the death of coral, but with other information about dying coral reefs, this book would be fantastic for teaching the life cycle of coral and ocean conservation. It is presented in such a way that it would be easy to make comparisons to other life cycles -- frogs, insects or plants. ( )
