A Swim through the Sea is an amazing book, worthy of praise no matter the age of the author/illustrator. This book is made even more special, however, because Kristin Joy Pratt was in high school when she wrote it. The art is stunning, the writing appealing and fun, and the overall effect is one of joy. Pratt shows love for her subject and an infectious enthusiasm. Every page is jam-packed with facts, color, and whimsy, so that children learn while they are enjoying the artwork. Parents, teachers, and anyone reading this book to young people will learn a lot while experiencing art that resonates. Pratt combines elements of art and science while promoting literacy using her rhyming text, alliteration, and sheer love of words. I can't give this book a high enough rating and look forward to reading other works now that I have discovered her!
Written and illustrated by sixteen year old Kristin Joy Pratt, A Swim Through The Sea is the creative and imaginative ABC board book the features Seamore the Seahorse as he explores the wonderful underwater ocean life with each depicted creature also representing a letter of the alphabet. Carrying preschoolers and kindergarteners from A to Z, Kristin's A Swim Through The Sea offers a delightful presentation of twenty-four interesting and beautifully drawn aquatic life forms and is a thoroughly fun approach to learning. An ideal addition to family, day care center, and kindergarten library collections, A Swim Through The Sea is very highly recommended for all children ages 3 to 5 for its unique, original, colorful, and educational format showcasing an alphabetically arranged variety of fish and other water-life forms.
