Book Overview

The Brilliant Deep is the proud recipient of the ALA Notable Children's Books Award, the NSTA-CBC Best STEM Trade Books Award, the Junior Library Guild Selection and the ILA Teacher's Choices.

All it takes is one: one coral gamete to start a colony in the ocean, one person to make a difference in the world, one idea to help us heal the earth. The ongoing conservation efforts to save and rebuild the world's coral reefs--with hammer and glue, and grafts of newly grown coral--are the living legacy of environmental scientist Ken Nedimyer, founder of the Coral Restoration Foundation.

In telling the story of this sea conservation pioneer and marine life protector, Kate Messner and Matthew Forsythe create a stunning tribute to the wonders of nature and the power of human hope--a power even the smallest readers can access in their quest to aid our extraordinary planet.

Recommended by experts for children who are reading independently and transitioning to longer books, The Brilliant Deep is perfect for the following reading categories:

  • Books for Kids Ages 5-9
  • Children's Books for Kindergarten - 3rd Grade

   How Will They Know If We Don't Teach Them?
I am grateful for the beautiful story that perfectly illustrates a passion for taking care of the ocean. I believe that this is the perfect age to teach our children about the health of our planet and what we can do.

   Beautiful Book
Today I read this book for my 8 year old, who is obsessed with underwater creatures and he loved it! Beautiful book, great history, very inspirational for the little ones. Thank you so much!

   I didn’t know we could rebuild coral reefs!
Everything I heard and read about coral reefs is terribly depressing. Like-you will see that coral reef in the next ten years or there won 't be one to see! I think all the challenges and urgency on this are real and important, but I was really surprised to learn from a children's book that it is possible to grow coral species. I then looked into it, and it is sort-of! My children loved this book for the interesting story and because I think it gave them some inspiration that small actions to make in the Earth and the oceans matter. The water color pictures are also seriously mesmerizing and appear fairly scientifically accurate, too.

   How to grow more coral in the ocean.
The pictures are done wonderfully! I liked this book so much that I bought one for my four-year-old children each.

   This is a story about someone who captures and sells creatures captured on coral reefs
There are plenty of other individuals and organizations engaged in coral farming that neither capture nor promote the capture of marine creatures from endangered coral reefs to be sold for aquarium hobbyists.

   Educational Eye Candy!
This book is one of the most beautiful 2018 picture books! And the best part is that it is based on Ken Nedimyer's wonderful work. Until I picked up this book, I had no idea who he was. It is basically an educational eye candy!
