The family loved this original book not only because it remineded us of all our good times we had on vacation on the Gulf of Mexico, but also because our children love marine life and surfing as well. The book is also very education and you may have your own child asking you more about the eviroment than you may have thought!
And as for what our little reader Adalynn thought of it? She gave it 4 thumbs up, two from her and two from me ! And she also fond of the artwork, especially the picture with the cute little turtles and the sunset !
