This book hits all the bases with my pre-schooler. It’s an animals book, it’s a counting book, it’s an ocean book. It’s a fun and quick read, but it’s also very informative. It is non-fiction in a very approachable way. The illustrations are simple and cute. We especially love the giant whale fold-out pages and the human diver silhouette on each page for reference!
