This joyful and soothing book about ocean sounds for kids 3-7 will transport readers to the seaside.

When a child visits the ocean with his little brother, he whispers to him, "The ocean has lots to say, if you listen." Together, they hear wondrous things, like the rumble of pebbles tumbling and filling the beach with shiny gems, the bark of a seal playing peekaboo, and the whooshing of a shell murmuring messages.

The second book in the Sounds of Nature Series for young children, I Hear You, Ocean is an excellent resource for outdoor education and social-emotional learning, helping to teach:

  • How to engage with nature in fun and respectful ways
  • Mindfulness and empathy with the world around us
  • Positive and gentle play with younger siblings
  • The ocean makes magical sounds—you just have to listen!

  • Connection to nature: I Hear You, Ocean encourages kids to connect with and have empathy for the ocean and all the species that call it home.
  • Self-awareness, relaxation, mindfulness: The gentle and soothing story encourages kids to listen to their surroundings and delight in the natural world around them.
  • Celebrates the bond between two siblings: Depicts the playful and loving relationship between a boy and his little brother.
  • Second in the Sounds of Nature Series: The follow up to I Hear You, Forest and the second in an environmental series that show kids how to love and respect different ecosystems.
  • Bestselling and award-winning author: Kallie George is an award-winning children’s book author whose work has received starred reviews, and has been recognized by organizations like The Junior Library Guild and The B.C. Book Prize.
  • Award-winning illustrator: Carmen Mok is an award-winning illustrator whose work has been recognized by SBWI Canada East, amongst others.

Praise for I Hear You, Forestby Kallie George and Carmen Mok

"Through each lush and atmospheric page turn, we meet new animals and feel the empathy the child experiences for the beauty and marvel that surrounds her? I encourage parents to read this book to their children and then take them on a stroll through their local park or forest."
—Good Reads with Ronna

"Readers will feel transported into another world."

"A lovely new picture book reminding readers that any sojourn into nature is enriching, but will be much more so when we activate all of our senses and awareness."
