Product Description

Review

Picture books like these get everything right - funny witty verses complemented by vivacious and colourful illustrations. (Books for Keeps)

Fast-moving and great to read aloud, this is the sort of silliness that really keeps children amused. (The Independent)

Glorious, glowing illustrations. (The Guardian)

There is much here that will delight and inform. (School Librarian)

The illustrations are a riot of colour and accompany equally witty text. (Carousel)

Rhymes, colour and action, the perfect combination. (Child Education) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

By co-incidence I bought this for my son (three and three quarters) around the time we went to the sealife aquarium. It is great for car journeys where he can look at the bright pictures in the book while listening to the poems, good for night time reading and was popular when he took it to nursery.
One short poem per fish or mammal - crab, whale, shark, lobster, angel fish - you name it. One introductory poem and a final one to get the child to remembering the sea creatures they've heard about. Simple verse focuses on a particular characteristic of the creature. Sounds of the dolphins are great, and the underwater music bubbles tempting your toddler to giggle and dance.
Flip side of the tape is without music for readers following it in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb toddler reading aloud book! 20 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Twenty month old James loved this book, full of octopuses, sharks, crabs and undersea creatures. The colourful pictures and engaging rhymes are wonderful. There is enough depth in the book to keep interest going until the book can be read by the child on their own. Probably the best book for a pre-school child we have bought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Commotion in my House!!!! 21 Oct 2005
Format:Audio Cassette
I have a 2 year old who thought this book was so good we have read it at least twice a day for the past 3 weeks!!!! The poems are fantastic and the pictures are really stimulating for young ( and older!!)minds. We have spent hours pointing out which fish are which and then reading the poems, and he still isnt bored with it. His older brothers have also enjoyed reading this with him.( they have even taken to making up actions for the different creatures!)
I will now be buying the other books in the series to see if they are as good!!!Father Christmas had better stock up on book tokens!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT 29 July 2006
Format:Paperback
Giles Andreae and his partners have written several colorful, snappy, rhythmic tales that instruct children in an incredibly fun way! Commotion in the Ocean succeeds in portraying even the swordfish and the shark in a realistic, yet not overly scary way. The illustrations in the book are superior, something I personally enjoy when reading to my children.
