Pagoo based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
The first time I read this book, I was in 1st grade. I loved it so much! Although I could only understand the pictures, I slowly began to understand the words and learn different ones that I didn't know before. Pagoo not only helped me to learn new words, but it helped me comprehendwhat goes on in the sea as well. I LUV YOU PAGOO!
It was thirty-six years ago that I first came upon this gem of a book, and my love for it has never diminished. Superbly written and illustrated, Pagoo is an excellent book to launch a child's (or an adult's) interest in the oceans in general, and hermit crabs in particular. I cannot describe the joy I experienced when I found this book was still in print and I obtained a copy to read to my daughter. It opened her eyes to the world of the anomurans, and gave her a hightened appreciation of how interesting and special our own pet (aquatic) hermit crabs are. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS.
This book is absolutely beautiful. A young child will be awed by the pictures, and an older child will be in thrall to the story, especially when Pagoo falls into the dark, scary 'Deep Hole!' A must-read for all tomboys or budding naturalists!
