great companion for teaching kids about protecting our oceans
Bought this book to send to 2 great-grandkids, boys, who are both crazy about all things ocean! They live overseas, so book is being sent to them. I'm confident they'll be as fascinated by the informative & fun content as I am! More please!
I bought this for a two-year old thinking that his mother would read it to him but that he could use the stickers in the back of the book for enhancement. The mom loved the book for him and he was very excited about finding the items in the book on the shoreline. Great book for all ages!
I bought Backpack Explorer way ahead of my great nephew's 4th birthday in April. Also bough 2 tubes of the sea-safe sunscreen to go with it. Will be a great gift duo. The book adventure looks perfect. He'll love the magnifying glass.
