5.0 out of 5 stars Take the Plunge!
Exquisite vibrant Polymer clay illustrations by Jeanette Canyon, stunningly photographed on every page. A delightful 1 - 10 number rhyme by Marianne Berkes, in bold, simple text on every other page.

Search for sea creatures beneath the depths, meet rhyming words, count to ten and back to one. Some things need to be looked for carefully, encouraging...

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't learn to count from this book
So the book is self is very colourful and the rhymes are once you get used to saying them are okay. the big problem I have with this book is that page 9 comes before page 8 in the counting and rhyme sequence, therefore I have to go forward then back a page if I want to count to ten in order.

This review is from: Over in the Ocean: In a Coral Reef (Simply Nature Books) (Board book)
Exquisite vibrant Polymer clay illustrations by Jeanette Canyon, stunningly photographed on every page. A delightful 1 - 10 number rhyme by Marianne Berkes, in bold, simple text on every other page.

Search for sea creatures beneath the depths, meet rhyming words, count to ten and back to one. Some things need to be looked for carefully, encouraging concentration and perseverance with the delight of finally finding. Scope for discussion is vast and joy to be had loosing yourself amongst the coral.

The rhyme introduces you, one by one to the sea creatures which seem to swim right out of the pages. Underneath each rhyme see the number etched into the sand with corresponding star fish. The back page has a list of suggested hand and finger actions for each of the sea creatures ~ Octopus, Parrotfish, Clownfish, Stingray, Pufferfish, Dolphin, Angelfish, Needlefish, Gruntfish and Seahorse.

Measurements approx:- Length 7 3/4"(20cm) Height 6 3/4"(17cm) Depth 1/2"(1.5cm)

Strong wipe clean pages, though not as rigid as some we have. Superb visual clarity and short verses make this very baby & toddler friendly. From our Ocean Box of goodies, this book is one of the highlights! Most highly recommended, gorgeous!
