Discover the magic and mystery of the coral sea. A colourful array of creatures is brought to life by award-winning illustrator Britta Teckentrup in this delightful peek-through board book.

Review by Stacey

Sea is a beautiful children’s book that gently shows children what goes on beneath the waves. The copy I had was a board book. The pages were lovely and thick and they had cut our sections in which you can see different fish.

The story is told in a rhyming style and the author has gone to great lengths to make sure that all the words rhyme. I couldn’t see any that were out of place or didn’t quite work, which is refreshing. The words also all corresponded to what was happening on each page and were age-appropriate, again this was wonderful to see as so many children’s books use words little children wouldn’t understand just because they rhymed.

The illustrations throughout are outstanding and so eye-catching. They bring the sea creatures to life with their vivid colours and attract the attention of the reader. They are full-page which maximises the effect and I’m sure children will enjoy looking at all the fish, sharks, whales, etc.

The board book is sturdy and strong enough to be given to a young child without the risk of them ripping it. It is quite a small book so perfect for little hands too.

‘Sea’ is an adorable book that will captivate its audience, have them learning in a fun, engaging way, and offer them a lovely, memorable read.
