A First Book of the Sea by Nicola Davies
Even Father Christmas likes to dip his toes in the sea occasionally and marvel at the creatures that inhabit the oceans and its shores.
Nicola Davies and Emily Sutton have cleverly created a spellbinding collection of poems about the oceans of the world and their shores. With this book, children can swim alongside dolphins and flying fish, pore over rockpools and sail from pole to pole and back, learning about everything from phosphorescence and plankton to manta rays and puffins – all in the comfort of their bedroom.
Emily Sutton's exquisite watercolours capture the breathless excitement of a child's first glimpse of the sea, the majesty of ancient trading ships and the sheer, staggering wonder of the humpback whale.
