In the Ocean

Guénolée Andre, trans. from the French by Yolanda Stern Broad,
illus. by Olivia Cosneau. Princeton Architectural Press, $7.99 paper (24p) ISBN 978-1-61689-669-0
Cosneau’s vivid digital illustrations help introduce a variety of aquatic creatures in this addition to the My Nature Sticker Activity Book series. Often-exclamatory observations (“Remoras aren’t scared of a thing! Thanks to powerful suckers on top of their heads, they can attach themselves to sharks and other large fish”) are joined by prompts that ask readers to color in certain scenes or make use of accompanying stickers (“Stick on the whale’s baleen to trap the fish”). The array of intriguing trivia (“When danger nears, porcupinefish swallow water and inflate to triple their size”) should hold readers’ interest. Also available: Garden Insects and Bugs. Ages 5–8.
