The four sections of the book will inspire children to take a greater interest in marine life, as well as enjoying the craft activity. It starts with Along the Coastline, then In the Rock Pool, followed by Around the Reef, and finally In the Deep. Each project is graded by difficulty, with three levels, so children can build up their skills progressively; there are 35 different creatures to create. The step-by-step instructions and clear photographs, as well as helpful arrows showing you where to fold, make the projects easy to follow.
There is brief information about each creature as well as ocean insights which are interesting snippets of information. The book includes 50 pieces of beautifully illustrated origami paper which stores neatly in a plastic wallet at the back of the book. This beautifully presented book is a lovely way to encourage creativity.
