Abstract:

From Nicola Davies and Emily Sutton, the multi award-winning team behind Tiny and Lots, comes a spellbinding collection of poems about the oceans of the world and their shores. With this book, children can swim alongside dolphins and flying fish, pore over rockpools and sail from pole to pole and back, learning about everything from phosphorescence and plankton to manta rays and puffins - all in the comfort of their bedroom. Emily Sutton's exquisite watercolours capture the breathless excitement of a child's first glimpse of the sea, the majesty of ancient trading ships and the sheer, staggering wonder of the humpback whale.

A First Book of the Sea

by barker_patricia (WorldCat user published 2018-11-15) Very Good Permalink

Kids are going to spend hours in this book just looking at the pictures. It is full of information surrounding our oceans - from tide pools to sea life to a little bit of geography. This book is an excellent introduction to the sea.
