Reviewed by Jane Finch for Readers' Favorite The Little Seahorse, written by Sheri Fink and illustrated by Mary Erikson Washam, is the story of a little seahorse who finds a shining orb on the sea floor and wants to take it as a present for his mother. The problem is how to move it, as he is so little. He makes friends with two pipefish and asks for their help. He is very nervous about asking for help because he is quite shy. However, the pipefish think it is a lovely idea to give the orb as a gift to his mother, and they agree to help. As they devise a way to take the gift to the home of Little Seahorse, other creatures of the sea gather around to watch and some offer help as well. When they finally arrive home with the gift, his mother is delighted. This is a charming story which encompasses so many elements. The idea of finding something special as a gift for his mother; overcoming shyness to ask for help; making new friends; and never giving up to do something special for someone else. It’s a great lesson in giving. The author, Sheri Fink, has created an interesting story with a gentle message that any child will enjoy. The illustrations are beautiful and colourful and really enhance the story. This would be an ideal book for a parent to read to a child where they can discuss some of the elements of the story that might be appropriate, for example, if a child finds difficulty in making friends. The little seahorse overcame his shyness because he was thinking of others rather than himself. This would also be a lovely addition to a kindergarten class.
