    This is a fantastic book!

    What a GORGEOUS book! ¿Little silver dolphin¿ is lost; join him on an underwater journey of discovery as he searches for his family. This book is instantly engaging, which is mostly due to the tactile treasures, and OUTSTANDING illustrations, but the prose is pleasing and educational too. ¿The tiny, SHINY flying fish go swimming through the air. Now lift the flap and you will see what else is leaping there.¿ The reader lifts the flap, ¿A sailfish with fins of BLUE. And Mother Dolphin¿s somewhere too!¿ In smaller print, the author includes lessons on numbers and counting, ¿How many flying fish can you count?¿ and ¿Can you find the mother dolphin?¿ This is a ¿touch and feel¿ book with lessons on marine life, colors, numbers and counting. The images, beautifully rendered, are beset with pattern and fine details, not to mention the union between the ¿touch and feel¿ items, and the illustrations on the ¿half-page flaps¿ are exceptional. Additional textures include: FURRY sea otter, SCALY shinny fish, PRICKLY pink coral, LUMPY lobster shell, NEON darting fish, SMOOTH skinned shark, and SOFT silver dolphin. Recommended for 4 to 8 years old, but my 1 year old adores this book, and finds the textures and images irresistible. ¿In the Ocean,¿ is a fantastic book!

    Beautiful illustrations and textures...

    I read to my 5 month old each evening and this is by far her favorite book. The text is lyrical and the pictures contain vivid colors and textures. My daughter is facinated by each and every page...
