Hello Ocean

Hello Ocean

by Pam Muñoz Ryan Illustrated by Mark Astrella

Sparkling, evocative illustrations and joyful text describe a young girl's journey of discovery as she experiences the treasures of the ocean through each of her five senses. At times exuberantly crashing through waves, at times quietly awed by their tearful taste, she uncovers the secrets of the sea.

Glorious illustrations of water, sun, and sky accompany brief, evocative verses, making this a perfect keepsake of a seaside vacation or a striking introduction to the pleasures of a day by the ocean.
