Children's LiteratureSea horses are such ethereal, lovely creatures, one could almost expect to see them in a fairy tale rather than in our oceans. How do parents or teachers express this sense of wonder to a very young child? This book, part of the "Under the Sea" series, is a great start. Using easy to understand text and clear, breathtaking photography, the book explains sea horses are fish, where they live, and their body parts: a head that looks like a horse's head, fins to help them swim and tails with which they are able to hold on to sea grasses or each other. These creatures, only as long as a pencil, can change color for protection. If you look closely, the final illustration reveals an adult sea horse surrounded by several tiny babies, their parents in miniature. The book includes a glossary, index, bibliography and web site. Well done! 2005, Pebble Plus/Capstone press, Ages 3 to 6.
