Young readers will discover that more than fish, crabs and starfish inhabit the ocean. Some of the gooey sea creatures the author discusses include jellyfish, sea slugs, snails, and the parrotfish that uses a cocoon of goo to protect itself when sleeping.

There's also the clownfish that finds that a layer of goo prevents it from getting hurt, and acts as a wet suit of sorts when it nestles in the stinging arms of an anemone. Hagfish, moray eels, squid, and some types of coral also employ goo in some fashion to protect themselves or find their next meal.

In the For Creative Minds section of this book you'll discover some interactive tasks and other activities to engage the youngster in this subject matter.

This is the perfect book to read before a trip to the deep sea aquarium. Your child will have a greater understanding of some of the exhibits after you've enjoyed Sea Slime.
