School Library Journal - 10/01/2018 PreS-Gr 3—This charming poetry collection takes readers on an exploration of the ocean, from a day at the beach to global migration stories. The various poem styles work well to reflect the many perspectives within the book. Sutton's colorful, intricate illustrations enhance an already enjoyable read by providing compelling visuals that represent each poem. The people depicted are diverse in age, race, and gender, and young readers will enjoy imagining themselves swimming in a pod of dolphins or singing a sea shanty. The extra-large foldout of a humpback whale, with instructions on how to sing a humpback's song, will entice kids and adults to try their hand at the calls. VERDICT This nicely illustrated and enjoyable poetry collection is recommended for most libraries, especially where aquatic life is popular.—Ellen Conlin, Naperville Public Library, IL - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
