Sea Horses

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
It's hard to say what part of a sea horse is the most interesting: the head, shaped like a real horse's head, the fin that helps it swim upright, or that remarkable tail that can hold onto almost anything. What about the fact that it is the male sea horse that holds the eggs in a special pouch or the variety of colors these ocean dwellers can be? Apparently, the author believes that the most remarkable skill a sea horse may have is holding on! Rebus books, which have been around for centuries, use simple pictures combined with words to enable a non- or very early reader to learn to read. This book uses nine pictures ("coral," "plant," "sea horse" (one), "sea horses" (two), "sea sponge," "seaweed," "stick," "shell" and "tails" and combines these with a total of twenty-nine printed words to describe the variety of surfaces a sea horse holds onto, as well as another sea horse or nothing at all. Well done! The photo illustrations are up close, clear and colorful. The book's size is perfect for little hands. Extras include a list of four "Words to Know" plus "Find Out More," listing other books to read, a list of age-appropriate DVD's and websites. Reviewer: Judy Crowder
