What cute and beautiful book! This rhyming style text builds on itself as you progress through story. Great vocab and illustrations!! Contains a letter to the readers and a feature glossary with all the animals in the book. I would use this book to teach rhyming, seashore exploration and discovering tidepools. Grades 2-5
