This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor 35: Debbie Stanton!

blue seaOur kids love to read. They love the pictures, they love the colors, they love the stories. And if the book shares a positive message or teaches something then all the better.

We recently had the opportunity to review a book entitled The Deep Blue Sea by Audrey Wood and illustrations by Bruce Wood. This 40-page fully colored book was a big hit in our home. It’s aimed for pre-school aged kids but even Kacie enjoyed listening to the simple story.

The story starts by pointing out the deep blue sea and progresses to a black spot on an orange butterfly on a purple parrot on a brown nut on a green tree on a red rock in the middle of the deep blue sea. The cool thing about this book is that it reinforces the learning of colors by repeating the names throughout the story. It also shows the name of the colors printed in that particular hue. I think this is a great way for Kiana to see the color as well as hear the name at the same time.

The words of the story all have a rythme to it which makes it easy and fun to read. We got through it in about 5 minutes and the girls asked if we could read it again and again. I think we must have read it about 8 times the first night!

We received this book compliments of Little One Books – an online store that sells books, music, and video for children from birth through the age of 5. Their website is organized by age and all of their products have been carefully chosen by their team of professionals who have personally reviewed and selected each and every item. What I think is pretty cool is that they even share with you why they chose a particular item to be featured in their store. You can tell that they take their books seriously and are proud of what they sell.

So stop by Little One Books today and check out their extensive product line. They’ll help you select the perfect book for that special child in your life.
