    When it comes to informational books, this book has got to be one of my favorites The book is pretty long, but it really brings you through Sophie s journey as a biologist and researcher I loved the fact that she takes you step by step through what she does during her job and how it is accomplished Not only that, but she teaches you about the equipment she uses, the animals she encounters, and how she takes down her data The entire book is about the ocean and how she is trying to understand When it comes to informational books, this book has got to be one of my favorites The book is pretty long, but it really brings you through Sophie s journey as a biologist and researcher I loved the fact that she takes you step by step through what she does during her job and how it is accomplished Not only that, but she teaches you about the equipment she uses, the animals she encounters, and how she takes down her data The entire book is about the ocean and how she is trying to understand the dolphin populations, which makes the story evenexciting Not only is she telling you about her job, but she is also trying to solve a mystery I would definitely use this book in any of my classrooms because it teaches people, not just children, about what it s like to be a bioligist in the ocean It s also really fun to look through the pictures and learn random facts
