Children's LiteratureHow would it be to live near the ocean? Full-color photographs show children collecting seashells, walking on the shore, and swimming in this bilingual picture book. Fish are also a big part of ocean life. Children learn these key facts and more from the simple text and large color photos illustrating it. Each page spread features large, bold text in both English and Spanish on the left-hand side, and interesting photographs illustrating the text on the right hand side. There is a positive message about living near the ocean that comes through in this book, which is told from a child's perspective. This title, which is a book in the series "Where I Live/Donde vivo," is useful for introducing a second language to young children and for children enrolled in "English as a Second Language" classes. There is a bilingual glossary at the back of the book, and a list of places to go for further information. 2004, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 4 to 7.
