Product Description

From the Author

How and why I wrote this book
I've known for a long time that children love songs and storiestold in cumulative verse like "This is the House that Jack built. I've also known for a long time that the all of the sea's creatures depend on food that comes directly or indirectly from the sea's tiniest creatures -- the phytoplankton who turn sunlight into sugar through the miracle of photosynthesis. It seemed to me that cumulative verse was an ideal way to introduce children to this wonderful mystery of the natural world. I'm glad that Dawn Publications agreed.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book for my 7 year old daughter, but I'm enjoying it just as much as she is. The cumulative verse rolls with the rhythm of ocean waves. Not only is it fun to read, it teaches vital information about the food chain simply and clearly. The illustrations are beautifully appropriate, evoking the feel of the seashore, and bringing extra life to the imaginative images introduced in the verse, such as huge storm clouds looking like flying whales. I love this book!

It isn't often you come across a book that you could sit down and read to a four year old and an eight year old and still manage to capture the attention of both. "This Is the Sea That Feeds Us" has that ability. It's beautiful illustrations and the author's wondrous ability of explanation combine in that magical way that allows learning to be fun. Every child deserves to own this book.

My children and grandchildren are getting copies of this book for Christmas! It shows how all food is ultimately derived from sunlight and the tiny creatures that live in the seas and oceans, but it also shows how we are all connected to the sea and to each other. It is a joyful experience to read this book and enjoy the incredible illustrations.

Unable to be put down by a two year old. 27 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has been a real find. My son, who has just turned two,absolutely loves the pictures and the rhyming text. He holds the book and gleefully waits for the next page. I love this book because I feel it is aimed at quite a wide age group. For the toddlers it has amazing pictures and the musical rhyming text; the four to six year olds, a book they can read themselves with the help of an adult; and the older reader will enjoy the scientific explanations. To sum it up, this book is beautifully written and extremely lyrical, and the artwork is delightful. Well done Robert F Baldwin, and his artist Don Dyen.

A Wonderful Lesson on Ecosystems 10 Nov. 2004
By Daniel Olivas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As far as I'm concerned, you can never begin too early in teaching children how the innumerable elements of nature connect with each other and that messing with one element will affect everything else. Robert Baldwin's wonderful rhyming blends beautifully with Don Dyen's rich and evocative illustrations. This is a delightful book that will make young folks smile and learn a valuable lesson at the same time. On a personal note, I am so lucky that Don Dyen (whom I've never met) was chosen to illustrate my first children's book, "Benjamin and the Word," coming out spring 2005. Don, if you see this, drop me an e-mail!
