Review: This is the cutest book! I love how the author took traditional nursery rhymes and rewrote them into rhymes about the ocean. This book isn't just for very young children but for any age. The rhyme and meter are pretty true to the original Mother Goose nursery rhymes and for that reason will engage the mind and attention of the child.
Sing a song of sixpence,
a pocket full of hay;
four and twenty pelicans
fixed a luncheon tray.
When the tray was finished,
the birds knew what to do;
they set this very dainty dish
before the trawler crew.......

One flamingo, two flamingo, three flamingo, four.
A flamboyance of flamingoes is a group of three or more.
First a goose, and then some geese--a gaggle in the lane.
But if the geese are flying, then the gaggle is a skein.....
This copy will be placed in the school's library and I encourage families to purchase their own for the sheer fun of reading nursery rhymes.
