This book consists of 11 verses of engaging rhyme in the same form as "Over in the Meadow", using fish and other sea . This is a great book about the ocean for children and I like how it follows the over in the meadow song, so you can even sing the words if you want.

Marine Life Nature Picture Books Science & Technology. Seasons change in the ocean much as they do on land. The questions that kids will have for the baby beluga are answered simply and clearly by the baby whale himself. Spring brings new plants and baby animals, summer oceans glow with sparkly plankton lights, and autumn winds blow across the open water. Young learners discover that baby belugas stay close to their mothers and live in large pods, they eat shrimp and fish and other sea creatures, and they can make many sounds like chirps, moos, whistles, and more.

Marianne Berkes, Jeanette Canyon. This irresistible, playful counting book introduces children to creatures of the coral reef as they clap to the rhythm of Over in the Meadow.

This irresistible, playful counting book introduces children to creatures of the coral reef as they clap to the rhythm of Over in the Meadow. Two geniuses--author and illustrator--came into perfect alignment to create this book. The author has kids thinking it is entertainment while adults think it is a great lesson about the ocean. The genius of the illustrator is obvious. With painstaking detail each illustration is created entirely of polymer clay, then photographed, creating a 3-D impression of tremendous vitality. Kids will sing, clap, and count their way among pufferfishthat puff, gruntfishthat grunt and seahorses that flutter, and begin to appreciate life in the ocean.And the art will inspire many a project. Please note: The board book edition is 28 pages. It includes suggestions for children to do body movements as the text is read. It does not include additional information about the animals, rainforests, and the score of the song as is in the hardback and paperback editions.

Cute story and lovely artwork: reason for 3 stars is the material of the book. It is not a sturdy hard book, it is like a thick magazine. The material makes it hard to keep the book open and appreciate the fun artwork. Would recommend but only if your okay with a book that doesn't easily stay open.

---A book that would serve as an enriching literature unit as well as a wonderful gift---

This book consists of 11 verses of engaging rhyme in the same form as "Over in the Meadow", using fish and other sea animals instead of meadow animals. A new sea creature is introduced on every 2-page spread in quantities from 1 to 10.

For example, for the number "2":

Over in the ocean Where the sea grasses grew Lived a mother parrotfish And her parrotfish two. "Grind," said the mother. "We grind," said the two. So they ground on the coral Where the sea grasses grew."

And so it goes for each number, 1 through 10, with every verse starting with, "Over in the ocean...." The eleventh verse is a wrap-up where the reader has to find all 55 young animals in the 2-page spread (1 octopus, 2 parrotfish, 3 clownfish and so on), similar to the I Spy books.

Some of the supplemental features after the rhyme:
* the rhyme printed with the music, sung to the tune of "Over in the Meadow"
* information about each of the coral reef animals in the book
* hand motions that may be used for each of the verses (e.g., for the needlefish "skitter": put arms way out straight, then separate arms and wiggle fingers in a skittering motion)
* description of the artwork by the artist

The artwork is excellent -- aesthetically pleasing and very creative! The artist used polymer clay with various tools to shape all the scenery and animals onto a board. Then, "to create the two-dimensional illustrations for a book, the reliefs are photographed (with careful attention to lighting)." I, as well as my children, enjoy looking at the artwork, trying to guess how it was done. This is the artist's first book; I certainly hope she does more!

This book can be used as a launching-off point to teach 2- to 7-year-olds in more than one subject:
* The younger ones (ages 2-4) can learn their numbers and counting.
* The older ones can use this for memory work. A large class of 5- to 7-year-olds could team up in pairs; each pair could memorize a verse of the rhyme.
* It could be used to introduce a unit on :
sea creatures,
coral reefs, or
ocean life.
* It could be used to introduce an art unit on clay.
* It could be used a the spine of a literature unit with all of the above as additional activities.

This could be part of a gift set to a young child, accompanied by some toy sea animals and/or a book about ocean life (or coral reefs or sea animals). The 10 kinds of animals appearing in the rhyme are: octopus, parrotfish, clownfish, stingrays, pufferfish, dolphins, angelfish, needlefish, gruntfish, seahorses.

My 5-year-old reads our library copy over and over. I look forward to having our own copy of this book, which will be a keeper in our home.

Every teacher needs this book. It's not just for young grades who are learning to count, but for older grades who are learning about organisms, habitats, and the animal kingdom!! It is so chalk full of information! The opportunities to use it in the classroom abound! The illustrations are amazing! The song is wonderful, and easy for children to learn, not to mention that it is a melody that many children already know. The best buy!

Our daughter is now 22 months old, and loves all the books in this series. The artwork is beautiful, and is noteworthy because it is actually pictures of scenes that the authors created out of polymer clay. So, when you see the seahorses on the cover of the book, that's a photo of a scene created out of clay. The level of detail is simply remarkable, and the artwork is creative and entertaining for both children and adults.

The books also lay the groundwork for counting, but not in an overtly 'teaching' way, but simply as part of cute rhymes and logical progressions of the pages.

This book (and all the 'Over in the...' series) are perennial favorites, and our daughter stays engaged from cover to cover virtually every reading, which is the ultimate compliment from her.
Nothing personal
Over in the Ocean is another of the series of books by Marianne Berkes and Jeanette Canyon. Each uses the format of "Over in the Meadow" to tell the story of the animals in different habitats. Each story connects parent animals with their babies beginning with number 1 continuing to 10. The story uses rhythm and rhyme to tell about the animals and the region in which they live.

This is a great book about the ocean for children and I like how it follows the over in the meadow song, so you can even sing the words if you want. I gave it to my 3 year old daughter while we were on a cruise and she loved it so much we read it every night, sometimes more than once. The board book is very sturdy and well made.

My son loves this book and the tune that goes along with it! The artwork in this book is absolutely stunning. It is really memorable to have a book that has a song that goes along with it. I highly recommend for beginner readers!! It does counting, music, and reading all in one. We love this book!
even if you're not a fan of ocean themed lit like i am, you'll love this book. for 1-6 yr olds, it is a fabulous read. the cadence of the rhyme and beauty of the artwork (illustrations) will keep YOU, the adult reader, enthralled as well as your little rugrats, the listeners.

it is supremely aggravating to do a night-time read-a-loud of a book that doesn't flow well, or halfway rhymes, or has a horrid plot-line or diaglogue. no such worries here.

over in the ocean...

grind said the mother, we grind said the three (or 2 or 4 whatever)

its catchy w/o being annoying, and simple and...best of all...not too long not too short!

great for learning your numbers, too.
