Recommendations for Tropical Marine Reference Books for Kids?
We find it essential to have a few good marinereferences on board for our kids to help them explore and understand their local environment. Most of our references are for the PNW climate so we are now looking for good reference books for the tropics. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Julian Sprung is a GREAT author - and speaker too. He knows his stuff.
However, for what you are looking for, I'd suggest a Field Guide instead. Then choose a guide for whatever area of the tropics you are going. The Caribbean is VERY different from the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Where are you going, and I can give you a better recommendation? One of my other big hobbies is reef aquaria.

We are headed from MX to French Polynesia, Cooks, Tonga & who knows where else this coming year. May find ourselves up in the Marshalls or south in NZ a year from now, we're not sure yet! Our kids are 10, 7 and 5... our son (age 10) especially LOVES to reference field guides for all the fish we see... his stated goal in life is to be an icthyologist.
