Reviews

PreS-Gr 1-This gorgeous picture book is perfect for sharing the wonders of marine life with young children. Through simple, poetic text, Rose highlights the variety of creatures found in the sea: "Big as a bus" (a blue whale calve) "and smaller than seeds" (the offspring of a coral reef), "billions of babies are born to the ocean." The narrative goes on to describe, in very basic terms, the various ways in which these animals are born and learn to swim, what they eat, and how they live, all accompanied by Nakata's fluid watercolors. The last four pages offer thumbnails of the earlier illustrations, along with more detailed information about the species portrayed. This book beautifully captures the magic of the ocean world and will work equally well in storytime, in the classroom, or for one-on-one sharing.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
