There are two reasons why I like this book. The first reason is illustrations. The pictures on this book are extremely big. They are drawing from children but yet very realistic of how a coral or a clown fish would look like. In addition the pictures are very colorful and have a lot of details in them. This book would be great for a class who is learning about the ocean and all the animals living in it. The second reason are the language and writing together. The language used is very descriptive and clear to read. For example when talking about Dolphins the book states that they jump, spin, have fins and also sings. The description of each animal is in a form of a poem. When there are two animals in one page the author made sure to make a connection between the two animals such as two fishes who eat the same food or look alike. The big idea of this book is learning about the different animals that live in the sea as well as learn what they look like by seeing very detailed pictures. A great science book. ( )

Book Summary:
In the Sea by David Elliot is a book composed of many concise poems that feature the creatures of the sea. Elliot’s poem tell the fascinating story of the sea through a variety of characters some of which include a shark, sea horse, sea urchin, and even a blue whale. The detailed yet short, to the point, poems describe the actions, interactions, and behavior of many sea animals and their lives in the oceans. The illustrations in the book are a main attraction; they complement the text and help to increase and expand the imagination and vision in the minds of readers and listeners.

Personal Reaction:
I greatly enjoyed this book of poems. I think the “under the sea” content is a very fascinating and captivating subject for young readers, especially with the help of the illustrations. Although this book is intended for young readers it does feature some advanced vocabulary and larger words so be prepared to help students out with this aspect of the book. Overall, a great and recommended read!

Classroom Extensions:
1.Discuss with the class the different characters in the book, i.e. whale, dolphin, shark, sea horse, sea urchin, etc. Ask them to choose the poem that features the animal that they think best represents themselves. Next, have students write or share aloud which animal or poem that they chose and why.
2.Provide students with one paper plate, scissors, glue, tissue and/or construction paper, markers/crayons, paint, glitter, and etc. Have students use these art supplies to create an ocean animal. Some examples include: crab, octopus, fish, shark, or jellyfish.

Another superb collaboration from the pair who created On the Farm and In the Wild. Great poems complemented with stunning woodcut illustrations. ( )

In this book each animal of the sea is described briefly in a poem. This would be very informational and fun for a young kid. ( )
