I See the Sea (Child’s Play Library)

We rated this book:


In the depths of the sea, there is a kaleidoscope of amazing creatures. There’s the one with the largest brain of any species known to man, the sperm whale. There’s also the giant Pacific octopus that glides through the ocean disguised by the camouflaging pigment cells in its skin. Closer to the water’s surface is the serene swimmer who coasts along using its flippers to propel through it. Though the female leatherback sea turtles can lay more than one hundred eggs, so few survive. Their numbers are dwindling away, adding to the ranks of those who’ve joined the list of endangered.

Sea animals and conservation have been the subjects of many children’s texts, but I See the Sea is unique in that its presentation offers a layout and design that little ones ages four to eight will favor. With just enough words to guide them, their curiosities will rise as they peer through die-cut holes that grow in size as they journey through the landscape of the pages. A gorgeous layered effect is created, each cut-out designed to be an organism’s eye, magically blending in with its surroundings. Youth will love the ingenuity and will likely add this to their list of favorites.
