Kobee Manatee: Shipwreck Sea Friends by Robert Scott Thayer Review
As seen on Goodreads : “Kobee and his ocean pals are full of fun, adventure, and inspiration. They give the reader a better sense of the magic and mystery within our ocean world." —Fabien Cousteau, oceanographic explorer and conservationist
Kobee Manatee and his pals, Tess the seahorse and Pablo the hermit crab are en route to Puerto Rico to explore the SS Antonio López, a historic shipwreck from the 1898 Spanish-American War. The ship sits underwater about seven miles west of San Juan. On their Caribbean adventure, they meet several new sea friends, including a whale shark, an octopus, and a moray eel. But as Kobee and his buddies begin their thrilling exploration of the wreck, Kobee gets trapped inside the sunken ship! Can Tess, Pablo, and the new sea friends rescue Kobee? Children are sure to enjoy this spectacular tale loaded with surprises, fun, and exciting facts all about Caribbean reef fish.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- The illustrations are the first thing to grab your eye in this super fun for kids easy to read book. It was a smooth adventure as far as pace. All of the characters have a good balance and make the book enjoyable. I first read it just the story and then re read the facts to the kids but you can read them both as you go along. It creates a good discussion which would make it a classroom read as well.
