My son's favourite, read every nap and bedtime,
This review is from: Under the Sea (Usborne Picture Storybooks) (Picture Books) (Paperback)
This was bought for my son as a present by a family friend, as we're a notoriously wildlife-loving family. From the cover I expected standard simplistic "This is a dolphin, this is a turtle" fare, but the art style and actually rather profound text make it a book we absolutely treasure.
This evening when we got to the "booming, lonely song" of the blue whale I amazed my 22 month old son by pulling put my phone and showing him a YouTube clip of actual whalesong - the expression of wtheer on his face (probably that Daddy's approximation wasn't all that daft after all) says all you need to know about the little spark of wonder this lovely book has kindled in him. He's also very proud to point out the "nose" on cetatian heads now, from our discussion of blowholes flsparked by the text of this book.
Anna, Cathy, thank you for your fantastic work in giving my family a book to share which is educational, inspirational and very beautiful.
