My kids love reading this book.

The colors are very vivid, and the story is fast and easy to read, and isn't cluttered with words.

Format: Paperback
I work with small children as a speech therapist and have found that this book teaches many different concepts in only a few pages. The little ones request it over and over again, even those who cannot yet ask verbally. The text is crisp and concise, and the pictures invite children to offer comments throughout the book. It is possible to read this book over and over and discuss many different concepts while having a lot of fun. I am on my way to wearing out my second copy.

My kids love reading this book. When the bigger fish can't get through the hole, the word is "OUCH". My kids love that, and think it's so funny. Beautiful book and cute! I found this book elsewhere for less than $6.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book because it was part of the continued reading list for Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons. My daughters like it a lot and my 7y.o. asks if she can read it to her dad and grandparents.

It's a very simple book with few words and bold colors...a great confidence booster, yet doesn't loose a child's interest.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Michael on September 18, 2002
Format: Paperback
"Blue Sea" is a delightful book to help the beginner/elementary reader learn simple comparative and superlative adjectives. "Small," "Smaller," "Smallest," and "Big," "Bigger," "Biggest" are mentioned in this 21-page story that averages about 3-4 words per page. The text is large, and the visuals are simple, colorful, and uncluttered.

I have used this story for preschool story hour at the library and it always goes over well. The illustrations are vivid and clear so that everyone can see it well in a group setting and the story line holds the attention of a mixed age audience.
