El Oceano - En La Naturaleza
PreS-Gr 2-In his quest to find his family, a baby dolphin explores and discovers the wonders of the sea. Throughout, the animal is unaware that his mother has been following him. In the end, readers are challenged to go back through the book and find the mother dolphin on each page. As children move along the pages, they lift the flaps to count the starfish and the octopus's legs, find a snail among the seaweed, and look for the animals playing hide-and-seek. One of the most attractive features is the variety of materials used to create different textures, such as the rubbery skin of a dolphin, the raspy coral reef, or the glittery scales of lightning fish. The illustrations are done in colored pencil. This is part of a collection of interactive books about nature called ""En la Naturaleza"" (In Nature). With its large, bold print and rhyming text, this book is perfect for group sharing with very young children. Lucia M. Gonzalez, Miami-Dade P.L.
