Diving Deep

Using Machines to Explore the Ocean

By: Michelle Cusolito / Illustrated by: Nicole Wong

From snorkeling to freediving, scuba, submarines, and Challenger Deep, discover the different technologies scientists use to explore the ocean in this deep-sea STEM picture book. 

How does ocean exploration work? What kinds of machines and equipment help researchers under the sea? How deep can we dive to find out more about the plants and animals that live in the ocean? For fans of Alvin from Flying Deep, Diving Deep introduces all the ways humans have figured out how to engage with, explore, and learn from the oceans.

Listen to author Michelle Cusolito talk about Flying Deep on Charlesbridge Unplugged.

Publishers Weekly

In their lyrically told follow-up to Flying Deep, Cusolito and Wong delineate various technologies used for underwater exploration, starting at the ocean’s surface before heading deeper via a survey of methods and equipment. A light-brown-skinned child and parent on a snorkel outing start things off, before the narrative moves into free diving, scuba, saturation diving, atmospheric diving suits, and, finally, deep-sea submersibles. Descriptive, often alliterative text sits opposite expository sidebars featuring abridged facts, figures, and dangers for each technology (“Anyone who knows how to swim can learn to snorkel. There isn’t much danger involved”). A collective first-person narration lets readers imagine themselves as explorers (“We’re ocean detectives/ solving the mysteries of the deep”), while realistic, digitally rendered illustrations ferry them to the depths. Largely unlabeled depictions of fascinating underwater creatures, including giant tube worms, should pique interest about what lies below the waves, even as the book’s focus remains solidly on the technologies of exploration. A summarizing spread reveals each technology at various depths; an author’s note, glossary, and resource list conclude. Ages 5–8.

Children's Literature

From the cover illustration depicting a deep sea diver in a submarine, ocean enthusiasts will be drawn to this book. This informational text opens with the question, “What drives humans to dive into the sea and sink deeper than the last inkling of light?” This book provides readers with a journey through the sea complete with in-depth information such as definitions of certain deep sea terms, historical facts, examples of different types of diving, and much more! For instance, “An Exosuit is a wearable submarine that flies through the water.” With its beautiful illustrations, this companion book to “Flying Deep: Climb Inside Deep-Sea Submersible ALVIN,” will be a fan favorite for elementary readers interested in ocean exploration. Elementary teachers and librarians will find this book beneficial for students researching deep sea diving and ocean exploration as well. This title could also be used as an informational text in ocean studies and units.
