Synopsis

Jacques Cousteau by Johanna Knowles

Jacques Cousteau was an underwater explorer, inventor, filmmaker, author, and world-renowned environmentalist. He was the first to photograph and, later, film underwater life. He, his family, and his crew traveled the world on his famous ship, Calypso, to film never-before-seen sea creatures, shipwrecks, and other wonders. His photos and films inspired generations of marine biologists, undersea diver enthusiasts, and environmentalists. Jacques Cousteau delves into the life and work of this underwater navigator whose name became synonymous with the ocean and the ways he introduced the world to the mysteries of the deep.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
