Somewhere in the Ocean by JenniferWard and T. J Marsh is a fantastic counting book for ocean lovers! My six year old picked this out for his little brother at the school library last week, and my three year old loved it.
Somewhere in the Ocean is a rhyming story about different mother ocean animals and their babies. The book starts with one manatee baby and goes all the way to ten baby octopus. Each picture has the number of babies hidden in it and my son loved finding the numbers, although some were hard to find! We learned all kinds of things as we read this book! Otters live in kelp forests, hermit crabs change their shells, and sea horses hold on to the sea grass so they aren't pulled away by the waves! The back of this book even has fun facts about all of the animals that are featured in the book, such as manatees, clown fish, hermit crabs, jellyfish, and orca whales!
My six year old sure knows what his brother enjoys reading about!
