"You cannot live without the ocean. Your blood, sweat and tears are all versions of seawater we carry within us so we can survive on land," writes Becker in a book that features hands-on experiments involving ocean life. Areas of focus include convection currents, which readers can explore by creating an underwater volcano in a jar; whale communication; and oil spills. Photographs, illustrations, sidebars, and charts combine a playful spirit with valuable insight into ocean health. Ages 8-12. Agent: Lauren Macleod, the Strothman Agency. (Apr.)
