Over in the Ocean


This irresistible, playful counting book introduces children to creatures of the coral reef as they clap to the rhythm of Over in the Meadow. Two geniuses-author and illustrator-came into perfect alignment to create this book. The author has kids thinking it is entertainment while adults think it is a great lesson about the ocean. The genius of the illustrator is obvious. With painstaking detail each illustration is created entirely of polymer clay, then photographed, creating a 3-D impression of tremendous vitality. Kids will sing, clap, and count their way among pufferfish that puff, grunt fish that grunt and seahorses that flutter, and begin to appreciate life in the ocean. The art will inspire many a project. It includes suggestions for children to do body movements as the text is read as well as additional information about the animals, and the score of the song.
