The Sea Book explores various creatures and depths of the sea. The most interesting thing about this book is the information it provides about how vital sea life is to our ability to live. I loved the included facts and information about what threatens sea life and what children can do to help everyday. The illustrations were really cute, as well.

Thank you to Charlotte Milner and DK children for making this book available to me.

What the Book is About

Little White Fish goes exploring in the sea. He is asked what he thinks is the most beautiful thing in the sea. His friends all share their favorites and eventually Little White Fish shares his.

First Impressions

Compared to the book White Little Fish, I really liked the change in color scheme in this book. The blues and purples are really eye-catching and beautiful. This book is also for a higher age level than White Little Fish.

What I Liked

I really liked the exploration of all of the different sea themed items like pearls and coral. My favorite thing was that he listened to and shared the joy with each of his friends about their favorite sea items.

What I Didn’t Like

I personally didn’t like the white little fish’s favorite thing. The object is more abstract for young children and also, I felt like it didn’t line up with the theme of the book very well.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I think the book is a good book. I think toddlers will really enjoy this book for its colors and illustrations and parents can use the book to teach their kids the names for different sea creatures and sea objects.

What the Book is About

Little White Fish is looking for his mommy and encounters many sea creatures of different colors along his way. What color will mommy be?

First Impressions

I love the simple color scheme which is good for very young readers to grab their attention. The artwork is stunning!

What I Liked

I really like that this book teaches children colors and also how to compare new things to things they already know. In addition, I liked that the wording changes a little bit on each page so that it doesn’t get too repetitive. I really liked the different sea creatures included in the book, too.

What I Didn’t Like

Nothing! This book is great for early readers.

Final Thoughts

This is a great early children’s book with a simple design that will draw young children in. It’s a good introduction to colors and naming sea creatures. I think it’s an enjoyable book for many ages, but a 2-3 year old would probably find this book very interesting. I highly recommend Little White Fish!
