I would have been obsessed with this activity book as a kid and I was still liked it a lot as an adult! There is a really good mix of facts and activities of various types. Some activities, like the kinetic sand, would probably require adult supervision, but most pages a kid could do on their own. There is a lot of variety which keeps each page fresh and would appeal to a wide range of both interests and moods - how to draw a squid, word jumbles, origami fish, and nautical flag secret codes are just a taste of the fun ideas in the Ocean Anatomy Activity Book. The simple ink-and-watercolor style drawings add to each page add wonderfully to each page. I am adding this to my list of gifts to buy for kids!

I love Julia Rothman’s anatomy books and I really enjoyed seeing how these books fit with the series. There were a lot of fun activities for children 7+ And a few for younger children. Some of them are educational and some of them are just fun.

Julia Rothman has done it again with this Ocean Anatomy Activity Book.
Another amazing Anatomy Activity Book to add to your collection. My eight year old's only criticism; 'I wish it didn't end, will they make a sequel?'.

As always the art work is stunning and the information is presented well for the age group.
Although there are activities my five year old could accomplish, this book is definitely aimed at seven to twelve.

Like all of Julia Rothman's books this is filled with information, not only about ocean life but important ocean wellbeing topics.
My children enjoyed the learn to draw activities and spent ages reading the Animal Abilities page.

Once again, this is another book I would happily use this to supplement part of our homeschool summer curriculum.

I was gifted a digital copy of Julia Rothman's Ocean Anatomy Activity Book in exchange for a fair and honest review. Thank you NetGalley, Julia Rothman and Storey Publishing.

This is an awesomely fun and educational book! Learning while having fun is some of my kids favorite ways to learn and this book is just that! I think this would be great for a unit study on oceanography. Well balanced with games, puzzles, and arts and crafts. My kids would work on the activities/puzzles while I would read out loud. It would also make a great book to take on a trip for doing in the car. 5 stars from this homeschooling family of 9.

Yet another wonderful addition to Julia Rothman's Anatomy series.

This one focuses on all things marine themed, with endless ocean based activities for little ones to do.

This is perfect for keeping children entertained whatever the weather. For rainy days spent inside, and sunny days exploring the coast - it has something for every little one to enjoy.

A brilliant way of encouraging children to get outside, explore the world around them and inspire them to look a little bit closer at the wonders of nature.

Thank you to NetGalley & Storey Publishing for the DRC

We have all of Julia Rothman's books except for the farm book, and our whole family loves them. The absolutely gorgeous draws pull you in and keeps you wanting to learn more no matter your age. I personally will be getting this for my 7 year old daughter and we will be working through it together. I love the mixture of different activities for learning. My daughter learns best by drawing it out and having that in the corner or the main project on some of the learning sections completely sold me. I hope one comes out for each book.

Julia Rothmann's Ocean Anatomy is one of the few books I bought directly after reading it through NetGalley, I loved it so much. So of course I had to check out this activity book based on the original!

As with the other book, it is wonderfully illustrated. The assignments are just the right difficulty for the age group. I love how there are a few how-to-draws in it that even I can use as an adult.

This book also has loads of information by itself, so it's not needed to have the Ocean Anatomy book to enjoy this activity book.

In all, this is the perfect mix between cute, inspirational and educational. Love it!

So much fun! My daughter really enjoyed this!!! We love the Julia Rothman books and use them frequently in our homeschool, so of course this was the perfect addition!! It goes along wonderfully with the Ocean Anatomy book. My daughter is 8 years old, and we found this to be perfect to do together. There's a lot of activities, crafts, mazes, etc. included and they are engaging and make your child forget they are learning. And then of course, all the illustrations in this activity book are just as beautiful as they are in the ocean anatomy book! Highly recommend!

Thank you, Storey Publishing, and Net Galley for a gifted copy in return for my honest review.

What a fabulously fun activity book based on the ocean! There is so much to do in the book that even the most reluctant reader will get absorbed. Students from grades 2 and 3 and up will love the variety of things to do from mazes to drawing to word games to crafts, especially if they are intrigued by anything having to do with the ocean. There are several pages on how to draw ocean creatures and a page on how to use origami to make an angelfish. I was pleasantly surprised to see a page about lighthouses and students are encouraged to draw their own. Every time I turned the page there was another fun thing to do or create or find. There is reading involved but it is not a static read and I found it quite immersive. My students would have loved this and I will be recommending it to all of my student teachers and their mentors to add to their classroom libraries.
Thank you Storey Publishing and Net Galley for a complimentary copy. All opinions expressed are my own.
