Hi all,

Do any of you know of any great marine life books for younger kids? I have a niece and nephew who are fascinated by marine life and I want to encourage their interest. Have to grow future dive buddies after all.

Would love to find one that is shark specific too. I showed them a video of me diving with the sharks and they loved it. My 4 year old nephew and I had a discussion about good sharks and bad sharks and he wisely replied that there were also good dogs and bad dogs and good people and bad people. From the mouths of babes...

I actually have the Marine Biology Coloring Book (It's hard to stay in the lines..). Great book but might be a little advanced reading wise, would be great if an adult read and worked it with the kids though.

Not books but a great idea: I had a friend visit with her 7 and 5-year-old boys. They would not give us a moments peace until I gave them each an underwater flashlight. We sat by the pool watching the boys, talking to our hearts content. Finally had to drag them kicking and screaming out of the water at bedtime!

Give a kid an underwater flashlight and they'll be hooked.

Now that is an interesting idea for the other set of nieces/nephew. They have a big pool in the backyard!
