Theme: There’s a whole different world beneath the sea, especially where there’s a living coral reef.
This feature book describes the formation of coral reefs and the many plants and animals that live in and around these underwater communities.
LeVar is inspired by the book to learn more about the world of coral reefs, so he dons diving gear and gives viewers a tour of the National Marine Sanctuary, an underwater park in Florida. Viewers also meet a "reef doctor" who shows how he restores life to damaged reefs by transplanting living coral.
Authors: Paul Erickson, Les Kaufman and Elizabeth Tayntor
