in my ocean book
Some of the cutest board books we have in the store are the brainchild of Sara Gillingham and Lorena Siminovich, who have created a series of stories centered around sweet little creatures and their various natural habitats. Their newest collaboration, In My Ocean, came out just in time to be enjoyed on hot summer days. Illustrated with cheerful collages, In My Ocean contains die-cut pages and a small finger puppet, making for engaging, interactive story time.
The story follows the travels of a little dolphin going about the day, swimming through seaweed and playing with an octopus, until they finally join up with their family to jump through the waves.
All the books in this series are beautiful. The bright illustrations and cute little finger puppet delight wee ones while cleverly introducing them to the wonder of animals and their habitats. These are mighty popular books at Dilly Dally, and we’ve heard only enthusiastic reviews from parents. Most find it difficult to stop at just one and soon have a little collection of these sweet and charming books.
