Book Synopsis

Hello, fish. Howdy, seahorse! What's up, turtle? Hello, Ocean Friends...

Making connections between images on a page and the real world is an important building block for your baby's communication skills--and this charming introduction to ocean creatures, paired with friendly text and bold, basic patterns, provides an important high-contrast experience for young developing eyes.

Using simple greetings like "Hi there, starfish" and "Hola, jellyfish" alongside black-and-white art by Julissa Mora, Hello, Ocean Friends is the perfect building block for babies just beginning to look around and learn about their world.
