Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2- A seahorse's life from small-fry to fatherhood is told in a text that reads like a story but is full of facts and new vocabulary. The dreamy digitally created illustrations take readers underwater to the small creatures' habitat. These fascinating fish come to life and even seem to have a bit of personality in this lovely book. A short glossary of terms is included, as is an author's note detailing the destruction of seahorse habitat and the damage that overfishing has done to this diminishing species. Find a spot for this one.-Heather Acerro, Rochester Public Library, MNα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

From Booklist

A tiny baby seahorse swims along, grasps a blade of eelgrass with his tail, and changes color until he blends with his new surroundings. Eating the krill and other small animals floating by, he grows to adulthood. After an elaborate courtship ritual, a female seahorse deposits hundreds of eggs in his pouch. The eggs hatch into fry, which he expels from the pouch. A new baby seahorse swims away, beginning her life in the ocean. The text frequently uses metaphorical language, likening a baby seahorse to “a tiny gymnast performing on an invisible mat,” and writing of a mated pair dancing “to music only they can hear.” From the scene showing hundreds of baby seahorses released from their father’s pouch to close-ups of one particular baby as he grows to maturity, the illustrations’ soft edges, gentle colors, and filtered light give the digital illustrations a certain visual charm beyond their value in providing information. Preschool-Grade 3. --Carolyn Phelan

LOVE this book!! I randomly picked it out at our local library, and all of my boys (3, 5, 6) have enjoyed reading this book. Beautiful illustrations, simple yet wonderful storyline, and very educational.

The illustrations in the book are beautiful. I bought it for my grandchildren to enjoy looking at the pictures but it is informational as well and adults will enjoy it too.
