Lapping at the sandy shores, stretching from the North Pole to the South Pole and from North America to Africa, the Atlantic Ocean is constantly changing shape and size and is always traveling. It has fascinated people for ages and still does today. Scientists study the Atlantic, fishermen search for its schools of fish, artists paint it, and poets write about it.
Here, the power and grace of the Atlantic Ocean are beautifully captured in Brian Karas's sparkling text and paintings. Explore what the Atlantic Ocean is, how far it stretches, how the moon affects it, and other characteristics as described by the ocean itself.
"An excellent beginning to an elementary-school unit on oceans. A lovely departure for the artist whose work usually makes readers laugh out loud." — Kirkus Reviews
