Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“An easy book for toddlers to hold and it will help them learn the names of sea dwellers and have fun touching and looking at the various shiny textures used to create the illustrations.” —Children's Literature
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
For very young children, this board book offers an introduction to a variety of creatures that live in the sea. The cover features a shark, but this shark is smiling rather than fearsome. Next there is a sea snail with a conic shell and then a big blue whale. They in turn are followed by a big yellow jellyfish and a purple seahorse. There is also a purple octopus and a yellow puffer fish. Some readers and listeners may not realize that coral is an animal, so it is nice to have it included with the other sea creatures. My only objection to the book is the introduction of seaweed, which may encourage readers to think that coral is a plant. In addition, the colors used are not necessarily that common, especially for the seahorse. Even though the book is titled correctly, I would have preferred a consistent focus on animals. All in all, it is an easy book for toddlers to hold and it will help them learn the names of sea dwellers and have fun touching and looking at the various shiny textures used to create the illustrations.
