PreS–Readers are asked, What kind of walking can you do today? Thus starts a promenade of sea creatures that scoot, slither, dash, or slide across the pages. A lobster dances, a penguin flaps, and an octopus twists. Once all 11 animals are introduced, readers are invited to join them as they head for a swim. The words that describe the varied movements are then repeated as a horizontal list of action verbs. The rhyming text ends abruptly with a splash. This board book could entertain energetic toddlers or emerging readers. The cartoon illustrations are bright and simple. Two flat colors, mustard sand and sky blue, with an unsteady black horizon between them, form the backdrop for the parade. The smiling animals are broadly drawn with a thick black line, and their friendly demeanor will attract children.–Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
