GIANT POP-OUT OCEAN by Chronicle Books

GIANT POP-OUT OCEAN

Age Range: 2 - 4

KIRKUS REVIEW

A dolphin, fish, a crab, an octopus, seashells and a jellyfish are introduced, each after a couple of questions and clues both photographic and textual. “I have a big head, but no legs! / There are suction cups under my arms. / What am I? (Here are two of my eight arms!)” Photographs reveal body parts; open the gatefold and a complete picture of “AN OCTOPUS!” folds out dramatically. As both guessing game and introduction to shore and ocean life for very young children, this operates pretty well and even delivers a few safety tips (jellyfish sting; don’t go in the ocean without a lifeguard on duty), though it’s likely not to have much staying power. It is, however, more successful than its companion, Giant Pop-out Food (ISBN: 978-0-8118-7478-6), which introduces foodstuffs so common (peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwich, pizza), it feels silly. (Pop-up. 2-4)
