SUBMARINES (All Aboard!) looks like a board book meant for young toddlers but don’t let the cover fool you. This book has seriously large vocabulary words like hydrostatic pressure, ballast, buoyancy, and other words needed to understand the history and mechanics of submarines. The different topics in this book were fascinating. I had never thought about what submersible is there to help when a submarine needs repairs. This book of facts about diving down deep makes it perfect for an older child in second -third grade to read themselves. Overall, the illustrations and the board book style pages make this book seem like it is meant for younger children but the concepts are complex and there are plenty of facts to learn about many aspects of undersea exploration and the ways we accomplish it.

SUBMARINES is a delightful and educational journey into the ocean along with the curious kiwi bird, Karl. Karl dreams of exploring the ocean deep, and he considers how he can do so, when he reads a book and realizes that he needs to join a research submarine. As the book continues, he learns about the challenges of going into the deep, how to build a submarine, the history of submarines, human creations, the zones of the oceans, and more. The end of the book invites children to imagine what they will do in the future, such as build an underwater city or find new sources of energy.

What I loved: This is a highly enjoyable and educational book that includes a bit of a story along with approachable facts and information about exploring the deep ocean. Each page has plenty of pictures for children to explore as they read about submarines and the ocean. The paragraphs of text are written in approachable language that will speak to the early elementary school age group. Key color changes in text make them easy to read, even when the text is smaller.

The broad range of facts around the ocean and submarines teaches a lot and inspires a love of exploration and the ocean. There is a lot to learn, even for adults who are checking this out alongside their children. The inclusion of Karl as a part of the story makes the book flow throughout and adds some fun to the nonfiction style. A really fantastic part of this series is how the end of the book encourages children to dream and use their imaginations for the future. This sparks curiosity and lends itself to activities children can get into, such as designing their own underwater city or imagining what unknown creatures might live deeper in the ocean.

Final verdict: SUBMARINES is a delightful and educational book that will appeal to curious young elementary school aged children. There is plenty to learn about the ocean and submarines in this engaging, approachable, and nicely illustrated story.
