Ocean Life

Welcome to Buddy’s Book Review! A review of our favorite children’s books here at The Nest Schools. We thoroughly believe in the power of literature, and we are excited to introduce wonderful new children’s books to our families in hopes that they will expand their own home libraries as we expand ours! 

How will we review and rate each book? Each book will be rated in terms of likeness to our core values: kindness, fun, wellness, and innovation. Five beautiful feathers will be given for the core value we think that each book represents the best. Happy Reading!  

Does your little one love to visit the ocean? Do dolphins, jellyfish, and turtles capture your child’s heart and imagination? Maybe it’s time to pick up Jill McDonald’s Ocean Life! Filled to the brim with colorful illustrations, McDonald dives deep into the life of our beautiful and often mysterious ocean. Each page shares fascinating facts about different types of sea life. From giant whales to long and stringy jellyfish, the watercolor drawings encourage excitement and wonder while learning about the world around us.  

At The Nest Schools, we believe that learning should always be made FUN for all. The more we show that learning and education can be enjoyable, the more passion and drive children have to learn throughout their lifetime. It also shows immense kindness to learn about things we may not know much about. Fully understanding the world around, us and taking care of it in return is the very definition of kindness! 

Ocean Life is a part of the Hello, World! Series, written and designed to introduce nonfiction concepts to infants and young children. This series is the perfect way to explain science, nature, and culture in simple, clear, and easy ways for your curious child! 

Buddy gives Jill McDonald’s Ocean Life five feathers as it shows great kindness to learn about and take care of our oceans. If every single person learned to appreciate our vast and beautiful waters, the earth would be an even better place than it already is! 

Ocean Life by Jill McDonald is suitable for kids, their parents, and those who work with children.
