Even though this is already out, I thought I’d post my review of this delightful informational picture book. I requested a copy off of Netgalley, because I am more hit or miss with longer juvenile fiction, but I usually like picture books and informational picture books. I’m also interested in how books like this are divided between fiction and non-fiction.
In Ocean Story, John Seven tells a familiar story emphasizing the connected nature of oceans and water supply all over the world. It is written in a story format, so good for preschool classes wanting to learn about water and oceans, but it does have some good information about the importance of recycling and taking care of our water supplies. I would probably put it in the non-fiction section, even if goodreads calls it a FICTION picture book.
Recommended for public libraries who want to beef up their water cycles, ocean, or ecology books.
