New children's books in the Water Library

Check out Wisconsin's Water Library's new books in the children's collection!

Manfish: The story of Jacques Cousteau
By Jennifer Berne
Before Jacques Cousteau became an internationally known oceanographer and champion of the seas, he was a curious little boy. In this lovely biography, poetic text and gorgeous paintings combine to create a portrait of Jacques Cousteau that is as magical as it is inspiring. Illustrated by Éric Puybaret.

Rain Play
By Cynthia Cotten
Most people leave the park when rain begins to fall, while others enjoy the sights, sounds, and feel of the cool water--until thunder and lightening come near. Illustrated by Javaka Steptoe.

Gone fishing : ocean life by the numbers
By David McLimans
Dive down to the depths of our planet’s oceans and see the stunning variety of creatures that call this watery environment home. These incredible marine animals and their ocean habitats are among our most precious and endangered resources.

If you are a UW-Madison student, faculty, or staff, please request any of these books from MadCat. If you are a Wisconsin resident, please request it through Wisconsin's Water Library book request.
