Secret Seahorse written by Stella Blackstone and Clare Beaton is a beautiful board book for children. What I especially love, besides the ocean theme and colorful pages, is that this one is a great interactive book. Can you find the seahorse as he swims through the mysterious world of the coral reef? Inside the book, it goes like this:
"I saw a secret seahorse deep down in the sea.Barefoot Books
I tried to swim beside him. He was too quick for me.
He swam past reefs of coral, with colors flower bright.
He swam past flickering fishes, then disappeared from sight.
I asked the octopuses where he might have gone.
They just shrugged and shook their legs. I steadily swam on.
I came across a mermaid, as she combed her hair.
I found an ancient shipwreck, but couldn't see him there.
At last I found a secret cave! It looked so dark and dim,
I stayed outside and shivered. I did not dare go in.
Then in the cave I saw a glint, and guess who greeted me?
Not just one secret seahorse--- a whole seahorse family!"
