Stunning photos of whales, dolphins, sharks, octopuses, clownfish, and other appealing sea animals introduce the very youngest explorers to the wonders of Earth’s ocean, from its depths to its shores.
These sturdy pages showcase ocean life with amazing photographs, supersimple facts, and lively, age-appropriate language to keep babies and toddlers—and their grown-ups—fascinated by every colorful page.
Designed to be the stepping-stone to the best-selling National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book series, the Little Kids First Board Book series takes similar subjects and distills them down to the simplest nonfiction concepts for the youngest audience. Not only will readers learn about the ocean and its creatures, they can also find recurring shapes and patterns in the design. Occasional “call outs” add humor for adults, and sidebar text offers additional learning for older siblings or those ready for more complex information. With their square shape, bright and playful design, awesome photography, clear text, and cues to encourage interactive learning, the Little Kids First Board Books mirror the beloved First Big Books while taking a fresh new approach to excite a baby’s sense of wonder and make learning about nature and science fun.
