Coral Reefs by Seymour Simon –NO

Simon, Seymour Coral Reefs 32 pgs. HarperCollins, 2013. $12.95. Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.
The basics of coral reefs interspersed with lots of large photographs. Includes information on the plants, fish, and animals that live there, along with present day threats to the habitat.
I would not purchase this book for my library. The text is presented in large paragraphs that would be hard to read for young researchers. It doesn't vary the font/text/headings to help differentiate between subject changes or important word definitions. The images are large, but not necessarily spectacular or informative.
