Five books for kids that explore the deep sea

At the BN Kids blog Jenny Shank tagged five top picture books for kids that explore the deep sea, including:
I Wonder Why the Sea is Salty and Other Questions About the Oceans, by Anita Ganeri

Ganeri answers dozens of questions such as “What makes waves roll?” and “How deep is the ocean?” with clear explanations and lavish illustrations—some of them realistic, and others cartoons that share interesting related facts.
