Blue Monday: Aquarium Fish

I am participating in Blue Monday, with our hostess

 Our grandson was visiting an aquarium on the east coast and as you can see,  he was totally into it!

These photos reminded me of a book review I posted awhile back.

Sail On Sailor!
January 16, 2010

Colorful, Bedtime, Great illustrations, rhyming, fantasy, dragon
Starlight Sailor is a wonderful story. The soft rhyming tells a lovely, dreamy tale and opens with:
"Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight."
The illustrations are magical - a timeless classic! You'll see blue whales, bluebirds, knights and kings along this journey of fantasy and pretend. Even the red and gold dragon is a nice gentle dragon, flying here and there, taking children everywhere! The starfish and mermaids singing their lullaby are sure to put any young child fast to sleep. So dream on little ones of flying fish dancing in the sky! A perfect bedtime book!

For ages 2-6, so this one is cool for our oldest grandson.


Another delightful large format board book with breath-taking illustrations is, I Spy the Sun in the Sky. We have this one on our book shelf. I have 3 grandchildren under the age of 4, so this is a hit with them. It's quality with durable, heavy cardboard pages and a simple story to follow along.  An interactive book for "spying" objects on the pages! My Marketplace


I Spy the Sun in the Sky

Set sail for a distant island with a young boy in search of a friend in this I-spy adventure. The rhyme and repetition encourage easy learning, and the surprise at the end will delight young readers.
Ages 1 to 4 years

Illustrated By: Nicoletta Ceccoli

It's truly amazing what one can find under the sea looking at the above photo. I can just picture a children's bedroom decorated in an ocean theme. What treasure have you brought back from the sea?

Happy Blue Monday!
