Two oceanographers and a pilot climb into a submersible to explore the depths of the ocean. They collect sample at thousands of feet deep and see many different creatures. When they collect what they need, they surface and store their findings to be sent to a lab. This is a great book for children to learn about new sea creatures. This book could also be used in a group project or research about the sea.
