Life in the Ocean

The Story of Oceanography Sylvia Earle

By Claire A. Nivola

Published by Frances Foster Books, 2012

Sylvia always observed and experienced nature from the time she was a young girl.  As she grew up, she fell in love with the sea and the marvels that it held.  As one of very few female oceanographers (and often the only female on particular expeditions), her contributions are important to the story of woman pioneers.  She continued throughout her life to discover and explore the ocean and show people all that is worth preserving.

A great biographical sketch to prompt deeper research for older students, or as a read for younger students interested in nonfiction.
