Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-This updated version has retained most of the text and all of the poetry of the original (HarperCollins, 1962; o.p.). The starfish is referred to as "it," instead of "he"; the words "crawl" and "pull" have replaced "hump" to describe how a starfish attacks a clam; and the arrangement has been slightly altered for a more logical flow of ideas. The variety of starfish that one might encounter, their life cycle, and how they eat and grow are all included. The most compelling reason to replace your older edition is the beauty of Brickman's illustrations. Lovely cut-paper collages placed on multicolored, watercolor ocean backgrounds make this easy-to-read title a treat for the eye.

Format: Hardcover
I found this book very helpful and informative for my kindergarten class. It is both simplistic enough for them to grasp the information and stay "engaged" as well as, complex enough for children to learn several attributes of a starfish...and remember it! There is also a great activity supplied at the end of the book. It's been a winner for me at home and at school. Great for beginners to science.

There is very little actual information in the book. My 4 year old wants to know WHY, HOW, WHEN, WHERE for everything... this book is very short and has very simple drawings. Did not meet our needs.

My six year old loves this book. If your child likes the ocean, fishes or animals they will love it. Even if they don't its a fun read. Teaches all you need to know about starfishes.
