Look Who Lives in the Ocean: Splashing and Dashing, Nibbling and Quibbling, Blending and Fending

Overview

Fish go to school, lobsters work as janitors, and creatures that can neither walk nor swim build fantastic cities - all in Look Who Lives in the Ocean!

Overview

Fish go to school, lobsters work as janitors, and creatures that can neither walk nor swim build fantastic cities - all in Look Who Lives in the Ocean! As children read these pages, they'll wonder if manatees are the mermaids that sailors of long ago reported seeing; they'll ask if dolphins are lifeguards; and they'll laugh or shudder at the caricature of a dentist cleaning a shark's teeth.

As she did in her first children's book, the award-winning Look Who Lives in the Desert!, author-illustrator Brooke Bessesen combines imaginative, rhyming descriptions and fascinating facts, accompanied by photographs of the ocean's most interesting creatures.

The result brings the ocean's joy and marvels to children's story hour.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 4

This offbeat introduction to 20 ocean creatures pairs large cartoons with simple rhymes. The humor involved in such images as a shark in a dentist's chair or a lobster cleaning the ocean floor with dustpan and broom is obvious. Other allusions and puns incorporated into pictures and text will make older readers smile or groan. For example, a swordfish in pirate gear guards a treasure chest next to the ship, Spear-it of '76 . Small photos accompany sidebars at the edge of each spread. Libraries in which Bessesen's Look Who Lives in the Desert! (Arizona Highways, 2004) is popular may want to supplement their collections with this lighthearted offering, though it is not a core resource.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato

    Family Favorite

    My 2-year-old son was given this book before our annual family vacation to San Diego. It was a fun way to introduce all of the animals we would see at the beach (including sea lions, pelicans and starfish) and animals we would see at Sea World (like manatees, turtles, octopuses and sharks)! He easily memorized much of the playful rhyme and I got a kick out of the humor in the illustrations. While in San Diego we shared the book with our friends' older children who loved both the rhymes and the animal facts listed in sidebars on every page (Did you know stingrays don't have bones?) I think reading this book before our trip made seeing the animals even more exciting for my son because he was able to recognize things and already knew some interesting information about them. He asked to read the book daily for weeks after our vacation because it was a great way to remember everything we saw.

    I think Look Who Lives in the Ocean is going to remain a family favorite for years to come. What I really love about this book is that there is something for all ages: beautiful illustration and rhymes that everyone can appreciate with facts and humor that my son will grow into.
