★ "This engaging entry in the Books for a Better Earth series tackles an impressive variety of topics. . . . The conversational writing is casual and captivating, and the appealing elements of colored text blocks, fascinating asides, and carefully condensed chapters makes all the information easily digestible. . . . An inspiring and expansive introduction well worth diving into."--Booklist, Starred Review

★ "Conversationally addressing readers, Sanchez adeptly conveys fascinating facts ("seaweed is as different from land plants as a bird is from a fish") about her subject. Short sentences, accessible vocabulary, lively comparisons (e.g., drawing parallels between sea and avian predators like sharks and hawks), and revelations--like learning that seaweed affects even those who don't live right by the ocean because it sustains air and water and provides food--will keep readers absorbed.... Fact-loving, sea-loving, science-loving, and just plain curious readers will find much to chew over here."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"A fascinating work about the importance of a seemingly simple life form with a gigantic impact, this is a strong choice for middle grade collections."--School Library Journal
