A sound book with a difference! This is the most recent addition to a series of realistic nature sound books for children. This book focuses on ocean animals, and is a must for any child who is a fan of the Octonauts / Blue Planet. The book includes information and sounds of twelve different animals, with two pages dedicated to each creature. There is a short paragraph of information, some basic facts, an unusual fact and a photograph of each animal. Published in a sturdy hardback form, it is perfect for small hands and can withstand much handling.
What is great about this book, and the others in the series, is that they are not patronising to children - my children love learning facts about natures, and the sound buttons help them to really engage with the book. Children can absorb so much information when they are young, and this book helps to make learning fun. It is really nice to see them excited about a book and to hear them reel off facts they have read in the book - either shouted out immediately to those around them, or repeated later, when you least expected (meaning they have really taken on board what they have read). Any book that can engage a child in this way is a winner for me!
