What did you like about the book:  Loved it!  An engaging nonfiction exploration of the animals that live at the shore: sea jellies, sea stars, crabs, seahorses, fish, sea turtles, octopuses, and dolphins. Each page is filled with fun sturdy pop-ups and interesting facts to enjoy about what lives in the ocean habitat.

Anything you didn’t like about it?  no

To whom would you recommend this book?  A wonderful book to share with little ones that love to explore and are curious about sea creatures.  It is a board book but I plan to share it with my elementary students who love learning about animals and are fascinated with pop-up books.

Who should buy this book?  Preschools, day cares, elementary schools, home and public libraries

Where would you shelve it ?  nonfiction Board Books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? yes
