This is an intriguing biography of a woman who has spent much of her life in, around and under water I love that the story depicts a strong, independent woman who is both passionate about her field of study, but also highly successful, too The narrative is just the right length to teach children about her accomplishments without being too detailed, boring, or overwhelming The illustrations are wonderful, too, and we paused reading the story several times to allow our girls to pick out their favo [...]
This is an jaw droppingly beautiful book the illustrations, the sentences, and the illustrations yes I do think they re that good I can t wait to share this book with my 3rd and 4th graders, I think during the week I m covering women in science.
I think this book hits an awkward spot in terms of recommending it to kids It doesn t have enough information to satisfy older readers, but the vocabulary and sentence structures would be really challenging for a younger reader I suppose I d put it in the 3rd to 5th grade range The story is a very basic outline of the life of oceanographer Sylvia Earle, covering briefly her childhood on a farm, her family s move to Florida near the ocean, her love of exploring ocean life, and some of her profess [...]

1 These Seas Count by Allison Formento illustrated by Sarah Snow, 2013.2 I selected These Seas Count as my twin text because I thought it was a great example of action steps students could take after reading about Sylvia Earle s passion for the sea and sea creatures After learning about Sylvia Earle s work, I know some students will be very excited and energetic about the topic of the ocean, and be curious about how this relates to them Even though we don t live near an ocean, we do have many la [...]
In some respects this picture book biography of Sylvia Earle is as much the story of the ocean as it is a story about the groundbreaking scientist The author takes readers through Sylvia s early years, growing up on a farm in New Jersey where she was fascinated by the natural world around her, especially in the nearby pond When the family moved to Florida, she quickly fell in love with the ocean, a passion that provided her with a career and a lifelong focus The story left me enraptured and sadd [...]
There are plenty of books on oceanography and explorers, but this book stole my heart with its soft hued, detailed illustrations and easy to understand, inspiring text Nivola documents Sylvia s early childhood from growing up on the Gulf Coast, where Sylvia fell in love with the water, to the historic walk along the ocean floor This book will make you fall in love with the ocean and its beautiful creatures, and inspire kids to follow their passions.I love Nivola s use of language She just doesn [...]
When I was teaching 2nd 3rd grade with Marianne McWhirter, she read aloud from Eugenie Clark Shark Lady I always enjoyed how well rounded that book was as a biography Nivola s telling of Sylvia Earle s interest in the ocean provides a strong main character who is a woman scientist Earle s interests and punctuated moments from her career provide the structure for the book, and go a long way toward humanizing the water so inhospitable to humans The painting style was enjoyable, with a breathtaking [...]
I feel like I have just met the Rachel Carson of the latter part of the 20th century Interesting format for a biography of Sylvia Earle with illustrations that seem like they are telling a picture book story rather than a life story I remembering really enjoying Nivola s Orani My Father s Village for that same sense that there is story behind the pictures than the text can tell As is becoming typical, the Author s Note goes on to tell about Earle s activism in speaking out for the protection [...]

I consider this book appropriate for 2nd grade There is quite a bit of text throughout the book, but there are also a lot of illustrations This book explains Sylvia Earle s life as a child and as an oceanographer Very interesting and easy for children to understand Biography.
Gorgeous biography of Sylvia Earle, the renowned oceanographer Don t skip the fascinating author s note.
This book and Earle s life are inspiring I particularly love the detail of the illustrations here.
I appreciated the gap this fills in picture books about highly accomplished women in STEM, and I also enjoyed the lovely, sometimes pointilistic paintings depicting the natural world Sylvia Earle explored As far as the text was concerned, however, I found myself wanting a focused, narrative driven story about this notable oceanographer.
When I checked this out from my local library I didn t realize it was a childrens book as I had it in my audio books list I read listened to it anyway and I really enjoyed the artwork in the book This author really paints a great picture of what it is like to be an Oceanographer She also discusses environmental issues and the ocean which I thought was awesome.
While I would recommend this book, I do think the author could ve gone a bit in depth, and include info on her accomplishments, and the struggles she faced as a woman in a male dominated profession.
