The Lovereading4Kids comment

This classic picture book is beautifully reformatted in this board book version. The joyful rhyming verse perfectly matches the exuberant illustrations of a host of happy crabs, sharks, jellyfish and the like at play under the sea. Perfect for toddlers and for parents to share with their toddlers.

A big book full of warm, noisy and great to read aloud. The Independent A bright and breezy book...with vivid, witty illustrations. Times Educational Supplement What a fabuous book, exuberant from beginning to end. Child Education A lively and lovely poetic romp. The Scotsman

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.
