The almost true story of Steve, a very scary fish.
Steve is not very big. His teeth aren’t very sharp. And even though he’s no Angel Fish, there are far scarier fish in the sea. So why are all the other fish so frightened of him?
This very funny story is full of real facts (mutualistic relationship between sharks and pilot fish) and introduces a range of sea creatures in a fun and appealing way. It’s also fun to read over and over again.

Megan’s underwater illustrations are simple but with that important detail that keeps a young listener interested and amused. The last page spread is the true part of the story explaining the relationship between pilot fish and sharks. A fun book and educational, too. This is Megan’s second picture book. I say it’s a charming book for ages 4-8.

Have you been to the beach this Summer or planning an ocean trip soon? Storey Publishing has a fun – and educational  – workbook called Sea Life Games & Puzzles. It will keep kids of all ages entertained while taking a real or imaginary trip to the beach!

Sea Life Games & Puzzles

101 Brainteasers, Word Games, Jokes & Riddles, Picture Puzzles, Matches, and Logic Tests for Ocean-loving Kids

Cindy A. Littlefield

Kids will have hours of fun learning more about their favorite sea creatures and ocean phenomenas as they work their way through puzzles, games, brainteasers, and jokes. Lead a clownfish through a coral maze, determine which oyster is hiding the pearl and figure out which ocean creatures are called lemons (sharks), cows (manatees), and barbers (fish). All in all, it’s a guaranteed whale of a good time — and that’s no fish story!

Sea Life Games & Puzzles is a workbook with a variety of activities, both fun and informative, for everyone. “Grab your pencils and dive in”

A dolphin is a whale? Yeah, I knew that!
