We read a lot of books with our children and always on the look out for special books that will entertain as well as educate our children. We were thrilled to receive the book Shimmer & Splash: The Sparkling World of Sea Life to review and promote through this post.
Brand new last month from Sterling Children’s Books, Shimmer & Splash: The Sparkling World of Sea Life features gorgeous, fold-out pages and information on over 200 marine species. Some pictures are actually life size illustrations of fish! My kids have always enjoyed fold outs in books, and this book tops them all!
Just as intriguing are the details of facts on all 200 sea-dwellers. This is a fun way for kids (and parents ) to learn amazing details about their favorite sea life. Not just mere facts, this book brings it to life with personable stories and illustrations.The author writes in first person, as if he is encountering the sea life in their natural habitat. He goes on to describe the creatures in details from their weight and size to what they eat and where they live. You can learn more about the author, Jim Arnosky on his website and wildlife journal, www.jimarnosky.com.
Kids will enjoy learning about a variety of sea life including stingrays, dolphins, jellyfish, blue marlins, man-o-war, swordfish, a green moray eel, manatee, sharks and more with Shimmer & Splash: The Sparkling World of Sea Life. If you are planning a trip to the ocean this Summer, this would be a great book to pack and have your children read on the way or in the weeks leading up to your trip.
