Hello, Ocean Friends (Board book)
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.
Selected by the NYPL Summer Reading Challenge 2017. Also available: Hello, Baby Animals and Hello, Garden Bugs. Coming soon: Hello, My World.
