School Library Journal - 10/01/2023 Gr 1–3—These two infotainment selections from National Geographic are as full of fun as they are of facts and seek-and-finds. From under the waves in Ocean, to all over the world with Animals, the brightly colored pages will grab any grade schooler's attention away from a screen. Each entry is part of the "Find It! Explore It!" series for a reason. The rainbow-hued, ultra-saturated spreads start with the mission of finding different creatures in the pictures. Then, once readers have found them all (hopefully without having to ask for help from a grown-up!), they'll be pulled in by the crisp photographs of the various sea life and animals. There are facts galore, all in easy-to-read type and vocabulary fit for an early elementary audience. When larger words are used, they are given in a sentence and phonetic spelling is provided. Kids love to impress with big words, and showing off their new words and knowledge will delight parents and teachers. VERDICT Great visuals and interesting facts make these wonderful additions to a screen-free stash and will keep the kiddos from grabbing a tablet.—Jessica Durham - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
