Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
How do you introduce something as huge as the ocean to very young children, using the fewest words possible? Folks who think writing for children is easy would be hard pressed. Ring, with help from consultant Steven Haddock, PhD, of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute has managed a fine overview of the ocean—what an ocean is, what inhabits it, what plant life grows in it and how people use it in temperatures from tropical to icy—all with a word count of 139. The book features a glossary/index and is illustrated with colorful photographs. Especially appealing is the fact that photos feature children whenever possible: children playing on the beach, splashing in the waves with family members, holding a sand pail and smiling into the camera. This a well-thought-out book for children and the people who love to read to them. 2004, Capstone Press, Ages 2 to 6.
