Dive into the life of Jacques Cousteau who was a world famous explorer of the sea. His inspiring story is truly amazing. Being a sickly boy growing up, he had very few options. Until one day his doctor suggested him to start swimming in order to strengthen his muscles. His life as he knew it changed drastically... he fell in love with the ocean and the undersea. His attempt to create a colonized ocean fell short because people need sunlight to live a happier lives. However, he dreamt other dreams and was one of the best advocates for ocean life. This particular book called THE FANTASTIC UNDERSEA LIFE OF JACQUES COUSTEAU by DAN YACCARINO is a beautiful book with some wonderful illustrations. It's a short, beautiful story that will make you want to run to the ocean.

For grades 2nd and up.
