About this item
About the BookUsing rhyming text, a child describes the wonder of the ocean experienced through each of her five senses.
Book SynopsisSpanish bilingual edition. Dive into this best-selling playful poem about the draw of the shore and the effect the ocean has on all five senses. Relive a day at the beach with this lovely book of memories. You can almost feel the salt spray on your face and smell the musky scent of ocean in the cool morning air. Remember how the sand squishes between your toes as the tide rushes to shore and taste the tang of the ocean on your lips. Spirited language evokes a sense of closeness and nostalgia for an old friend. The inspiration of the ocean will make learning the five senses in English and Spanish as easy as a day at the beach. Crisp, realistic illustrations fill the pages with the rush of surf and the warmth of sun-baked sand. The sights and smells and sensations of the sea become vividly clear in these beautifully rendered paintings.
Munoz Ryan creates a rhyming text in both Spanish and English that captures the awe of a young girl discovering the ocean. The photographic realism of the illustrations provides a feast for the eyes, while at the same time the story's protagonist is using each of her senses to take in her experience.
