In kelp forests, the most commonly found invertebrates are bristle worms, scud, prawn, snails . One of the most important mammals in a kelp forest is the sea otter, who takes refuge from sharks and storms in these forests.

These animals feed on the holdfasts that keep kelp anchored to the bottom of the ocean and algae that are abundant in kelp forests. Sea urchins will often completely remove kelp plants by eating through their holdfasts. The sea otter eats the red sea urchin that can destroy a kelp forest if left to multiply freely.

Describes what a kelp forest is and what animals live on or near the kelp forest for protection and food.

This was a great book. It held our attention and the text was easy to understand. The subject was thoroughly covered and we learned a lot of new words and concepts. The pictures were beautiful and helped reinforce the text - for example, if they were talking about a float or a holdfast, there would be a clear picture of the named thing.

Overall a very good book about kelp forests. And one we will use again. Living close to the ocean made this especially fun as we were able to go look at everything we studied first hand. I just love picking up slimy kelp!

I think this could be used from kindergarten (with help) up through late middle school.
