Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The creators of Into the A, B, Sea: An Ocean Alphabet bring their talents to an attractive new counting book, One Nighttime Sea: An Ocean Counting Rhyme by Deborah Lee Rose, illus. by Steve Jenkins. "All night long, while you are asleep, millions of sea creatures move through the deep!" begins the lyrical text. Through Jenkins's signature cut-paper collage artwork, readers view the ocean creatures that come out at night, among them dragonfish, moray eels and spider crabs. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
From one to ten, then from ten to one, a wide array of sea life is depicted in this ocean counting rhyme. The verse flows through familiar faces, from two humpback whales to nine sea lions, as well as a few more mysterious characters, from nine nudibranchs to three zebra morays. Steve Jenkins' cut paper collages are bursting with life and color and coordinate perfectly with Deborah Lee Rose's verse. The story teaches counting, forwards as well as backwards, and also relays the concept of quantity through the illustrations. Collaborating with marine biologists Catherine Halverson and Brian Gibeson, Deborah Lee Rose also provides useful background information on each sea animal at the end of the book. 2003, Scholastic Press, Ages 4 to 8.
— Jared Reck
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-In a lapping, sealike rhythm, this enchanting counting book lulls its audience into the world beneath the waves. The rhyming text encourages readers to count sea creatures poetically going about their evening activities up to 10 and then back down until "one brand-new seal pup discovers the day." Rose introduces common marine animals, like turtle hatchlings, and others that are less familiar, like silky nudibranchs. At the end, a useful "More about the nighttime sea" section provides further detail about the animals mentioned. Vivid cut-paper collages beautifully interplay with the rhymes. This evocative read-aloud will make a splash with youngsters practicing their counting, learning about sea life, or simply enjoying the book one-on-one before bedtime.-Julie Roach, Malden Public Library, MA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
This rhymed complement to Into the A, B, Sea: An Ocean Alphabet (2000) takes children above and below-sometimes far below-the waves with one blue whale calf, two humpbacks, and so on, up to ten turtle hatchlings, and then back down to one "brand-new seal pup." Jenkins dims the colors of his amazingly lifelike animals only slightly to suggest nocturnal settings, and even in the higher numbers his paper collage scenes never look busy or overcrowded. Readers wondering how to pronounce "nudibranch," or what's up with the bits of fluff on the four spider crabs and the eight parrotfish will find answers and other factual tidbits in three pages worth of notes at the back. Appealing to novice enumerators and budding naturalists alike. (Picture book. 5-7)

    In February, my toddler son visited an aquarium and loved it, so

    In February, my toddler son visited an aquarium and loved it, so the following week, I checked this book out of the library. I thought it was just another ocean counting book. It is not. 
    The first half is pretty standard: whales, seals, turtles. The second half was quite unexpected and delightfully jarring: nudibranches, zebra moray, dragonfish. The dragonfish illustration was by far the most unsettling and by far my son's favorite. I'm not sure what that means, but he did really like the teeth. 
    Great, unusual choices for this ocean counting book, that are excellently matched by colorful, dimensional illustrations. Don't miss this one, especially if you have an ocean-entranced toddler like I have.
