When Mrs. Seahorse lays her eggs, she does it on Mr. Seahorse's belly She knows he will take good care of them. While he swims waiting for the eggs to hatch, he meets other underwater fathers caring for their babies. Now Eric Carle's heart-warming New York Times bestseller is finally available in a board book edition, complete with the clear "peek-a-boo" pages that made the original such a hit. Brimming with bright, colorful sea life, this new board book will be irresistable to young children everywhere.
Like all male seahorses, Father Seahorse carries his wife's eggs in his pouch until they are ready to be born. As he awaits the arrival of his children, Father Seahorse travels the ocean, and along the way he meets other male sea creatures who also care for their soon-to-be born, or just born, babies. Colorful tissue-paper collage illustrations, some featuring acetate lift-the-flaps, accompany the text.
