A First Book of the Sea

The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section - By Ni­cola Davies

With this book, chil­dren can swim along­side dol­phins and fly­ing fish, pore over rock­pools and sail from pole to pole and back, learn­ing about ev­ery­thing from phos­pho­res­cence and plank­ton to manta rays and puffins - all in the com­fort of their bed­room. Emily Sut­ton’s ex­quis­ite wa­ter­colours cap­ture the breath­less ex­cite­ment of a child’s first glimpse of the sea, the majesty of an­cient trad­ing ships and the sheer, stag­ger­ing won­der of the hump­back whale.

The per­fect com­pan­ion to in­ter­na­tional best­sellers A First Book of Na­ture and A First Book of An­i­mals, this book is sure to en­thral and in­spire read­ers of all ages.
