    Cute book!

    I love reading this with my 16 month old. Great illustrations, cute wording/rhyming. Loved the Rumble in the Jungle and Barnyard Hullabaloo also!

    Great for Young Readers!

    Commotion in the Ocean was written by Giles Andreae and illustrated by David Wogtowycz. This picture book is an amazing story that includes many of the sea creatures in the ocean. It also shows creatures that hatch their eggs on land and then return to the ocean. This story is rich with literary terms. It uses onomonopias, alliterations and much more. Some of the sea creatures include dolphins, angel fish, jelly fish, sharks, sword fish, octopus, stingrays, and lobsters. It also describes deep sea creatures! It also describes walruses, penguins, polar bears, and so much more. The pages are extremely colorful as they illustrate each creature. For the classroom, this would be a great read-aloud. I would recommend this be read to a first grade class during your study on the ocean. The students could then create their own sea creatures and display them on the "ocean wall" in your classroom. They could then write a story about their sea creature and include all of the facts they learned about it from the book. For an extension activity, students could pick one creature and research more information on it at home. Then they could share their new information to the class the next day. There are tons of activities that could be used relating to this wonderful book. I hope you will take the opportunity to read this book to your class as I know they would love it!
