Summary: A girl and her mother explore many different aspects of the ocean. It can be shallow or deep; slimy or sandy; sparkly or dull. It can splash, crash, echo, squawk, or be silent. It appears and disappears with the tides. She finds things that are pink, orange, grey, green, and red in and around the ocean, but mostly it is deep, endless blue. 32 pages; ages 3-7.
Pros: This follow up to My Forest Is Green will make kids want to go to the beach and look closely at all that is in and around the ocean. The collage illustrations are filled with great colors and textures that really capture the feel of the seashore.
Cons: I turned the last page, eagerly expecting additional information and sources about the ocean…nothing.
