Our son Brian has always been a bookworm. He could not for any reason get in the car or sit on the sofa without something in his hands to read. He’s still an avid reader and his children are exactly the same. They read. Everything. And we love gifting those grandchildren of ours with books. Shimmer & Splash, The Sparkling World of Sea Life is an absolutely gorgeous book.
Author Jim Arnosky has created a wonderland of sea creatures. Shimmer & Splash is both educating and entertaining. That along with the beautiful illustrations make it a perfect addition to any library. This weekend our grandson, Cody, will be adding it to his library of fascinating books. We’re gifting Cody with a trip under the sea with Shimmer & Splash. His big gift from us will be getting in the water at Sea World to interact with beluga whales so … Shimmer & Splash goes hand in hand for his birthday. Yes?
The pages of the book are colorful and realistic. There are also plenty of pencil illustrations pinpointing the intricate body parts of the sea creatures along with their habitats.
A big bonus is the giant fold out pages depicting life-size fish and creatures.
Although the sharks may not be life-size, they’re incredibly realistic and quite intimidating. And that’s exactly the way they should be! We have a tremendous love for books at our house and review them quite often. I have to admit, Shimmer & Splash is one of my favorites. It’s simply a gorgeous book.
Shimmer & Splash is available in book stores everywhere and on Amazon. But we want everyone can have the chance to add Shimmer & Splash to their own home library. So we have a
