The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau

Review From User :

The Fantastic Undersea Life of Jacques Cousteau by Dan Yaccarino is a children's book about a man who loved the sea and wanted to share all its loveliness with the world.

The book starts out in his childhood and progresses through his life of underwater adventures. The book also discusses his ideas and inventions for viewing and staying below water longer by use of an aqua lung.

"When one man, for whatever reason, has the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself."
Jacques-Yves Cousteau

The illustrations are beautiful, colorful, and keep children's interest. The story is simple and easy to follow. I particularly enjoyed the list of important events in his life and selected sources for further study.
