about:

 

Maggie is a marine biologist. She and her team study all the living things in the ocean. Today is an exciting day: after months of research, the team is diving into the water with a traveling group of whales to record their songs and learn more about how whales communicate.

reviews:

"The instructive text is educational and entertaining, and young readers will thrill in seeing the diverse group of kids take the reins of scientific discovery...Playful illustrations capture the cool, endless depths of the ocean...and discussion of the scientific method and ways to pursue an interest in marine biology round out the back matter. A charming introduction to marine biology and scientific inquiry from the Kid Scientists series (2 titles).” —Booklist

 

“What do marine biologists do? Fliess focuses on fieldwork...Maggie, a Black marine biologist, and her racially diverse team dive into the ocean to swim with humpback whales. They each have a different task... straightforward text offers...the importance of a hypothesis, part of the scientific method...There’s also a quick review of how Maggie and her group’s actions correspond to the scientific method. A highly simplified but inviting overview of marine biology.” —Kirkus Reviews
